Congratulations to Josh S. Gorlick of Lake Stevens who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.
The trivia question of the week was:
Doctor, doctor can you cure my fishing blues?
How about a good dose of trout fishing at this lake southwest of Spokane.
There are actually two lakes within close proximity so we’ll take the correct answer for either one. Many fly anglers have fun taking some nice brown trout tossing dry flies.
The lake I’m looking for an answer to is open March 1 for the early eastside season trout fishery and closes Oct. 31 with selective gear rules in place, and many will come to just catch and release. The nearby lake is open during the general season that opens on the 4th Saturday of April.
The correct answer Gorlick gave was Medical Lake.
“I have fished all over Washington for all types of fish, and enjoy both fresh and saltwater,” said Gorlick who actually does find time to work at the Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in Bellevue.
“I do highly enjoy fishing for salmon, trout and steelhead mainly, and I am an addict in every sense of the word,” he said. “I grew up in North Seattle and fished any creek I could find, Lake Washington, and fished the Yakima River around Benton City in the summer where I have family.”
While Gorlick attended Washington State University he spent and enjoyed fishing the Snake river and Lewiston areas for all types of fish. His favorite places for saltwater fishing includes the Edmonds Pier, Whidbey Island, Westport and Newport.
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, Aug. 20. Winners are announced the following Friday.
Here are our rules for The Seattle Times contest.
