Congratulations to Henry Cancino of Everett who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.

The trivia question of the week was:

This lake is known for its good kokanee fishing, and when heading north or south on I-5 you can get peek-a-boo views of this beautiful gem. It covers more than 800-acres, and is also host to crappie, bass and big cutthroat trout.

The downside to this lake mainly in the summertime is the personal watercraft like jet and water skiers who ply it heavily on warm days. Early mornings are best during the summer for those who go fishing. There is a boat ramp on the east side of the lake, and Whatcom County Parks has a launch on the northwest side.

The correct answer was Lake Samish.

“I started fishing with my grandfather about the time I learned to walk,” Cancino said. “I used to fish Pillar Point and Puget Sound in the seventies. As I got older I started fishing local rivers for salmon and steelhead.”

“I still prefer chasing salmon on the salt and will head out whenever possible,” he said. “I love any kind of fishing, and even spent a couple years as a part time deckhand on a charter out of Kona, Hawaii.”

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, Aug. 13. Winners are announced the following Friday. Winners must respond to notification via email by Thursday to be eligible for the prize.

Here are our rules for The Seattle Times contest.
