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

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

This place is the gateway for all migrating salmon runs heading up the mighty river, the largest once free flowing river in the state.

This year more than a half-million fall chinook will head upstream, and it is this particular place that will be filled with thousands of anglers everyday through fall. The chinook fishery usually culminates by the third week of August, but right now has been very good for chinook and a few hatchery coho.

It is a tricky place to fish, and anglers must watch the weather and keep away from shallow sand bars all across the wide body of water. If this certain place isn’t productive many will head out in the ocean to look for salmon.

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, Aug. 24. 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.
