It’s Reel Time Trivia so put on your fishing thinking cap

Here is the Reel Time Pacific Northwest fishing and outdoor trivia question of the week:

The first clue might be a dead giveaway to this trivia question, but this fishing locale we’re thinking of in Marine Catch Area 9 produced the best hatchery king bite this morning on the opener (Monday, July 16).

This expansive underwater plateau is trolled by salmon anglers, but the preferred methods are mooching a herring or candlefish or simply tossing a jig over the side of the boat. There is an island located to the south and just west is one of the larger towns in the Olympic Peninsula area.

Summer is a popular time to fish for salmon, but winter is another great time to catch feeder chinook digging their noses in the sandy bottom looking for schools of candlefish.

Where am I fishing?

The person to answer this question first will win a nice outdoor related book or some fishing tackle.

Please email your answer to myuasa@seattletimes.com. The winner will be announced on Friday, July 20. Be sure to include an email plus phone number so we can ensure you’ll get your prize.

This will be an ongoing weekly trivia contest where the winner will receive a prize that will range from books, fishing gear and other cool items from the outdoors gunnysack.

Here are our rules for The Seattle Times contest.
