Congratulations to Josh S. Gorlick of Lake Stevens who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.

The trivia question of the week was:

This huge lake covers 21 miles,and stretches from the Canadian into the northern Cascades. It doesn’t get much fishing effort, but you’d be surprise of the good rainbow and cutthroat fishing, and how big the fish can get in this watershed.

There is a boat launch on the Canadian side, but a nice resort with cabins and boat rentals is located on the south end. Fishing is currently open until Oct. 31, and is a selective fishery so no bait is allowed, and only lures or flies with a single barbless hook may be used.

The correct answer Gorlick gave was Ross Lake.

“I have been fishing all over the state from a young age, mainly with family members, friends and solo,” Gorlick said. “Started by fishing creeks around Lake Washington, Yakima River, Snake River, Stillaguamish River and creeks, many Snohomish county lakes and rivers, and the mighty Skagit and Columbia rivers.”

His favorite places for saltwater fishing includes the Edmonds Pier, Whidbey Island, Westport and Newport.

“Anywhere I can get a line into,” he said of his love of fishing. “Especially enjoy fishing rivers for salmon, steelhead and trout these days, mainly drifting. The Skykomish is a jewel in my eye for sure.”

Gorlick wins a nice outdoors prize.

This will be an ongoing weekly trivia contest where the winner who answers the question first will receive an outdoor prize that will range from books, Berkley bait, lures and other nifty items from the outdoors gunnysack.

The next trivia question will posted on Monday, July 16. Winners are announced the following Friday.

Here are our rules for The Seattle Times contest.
