Congratulations to Aaron Cox of Tacoma who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.

The trivia question of the week was:

This lake north of Highway 2 in the middle of the state covers 500 acres, and has been a big draw for trout anglers for many, many years. It draws a lot of anglers for the spring April lowland lakes trout opener, and then closes in early July.

It then reopens to fishing in the fall when the big crowds are gone, but the action remains stellar for trout that have grown big since they were planted in the spring from all the feed in the lake. The lake has a long-standing resort, and while many will fish from small boats you can also get into the action from the ample shoreline.

The correct answer Cox gave was Jameson Lake.

“I live in Browns Point beach community off Puget Sound in northweast Tacoma,” Cox said. “My uncle started taking me on fishing trip back when I was a in the first grade. I have been fishing ever since with cousins and friends.”

As a kid we moved around a lot and I have lived in very fish friendly cities and state, Corpus Christi (Texas), Pensacola (Florida) and Hartford (Connecticut), and of course here in Washington,” he said. “Besides playing sports, we always found time to go fishing even if we had to catch the city bus. I like all types of fishing (lake, sound and river). ”

“Living in Browns Points I really enjoy the odd years when the PINKS run,” Cox said. “I can walk down to the beach to fish before and after work. I like fishing for trout and walleye on the other side of the Cascades.”

Cox 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, Sept. 24. Winners are announced the following Friday.

Here are our rules for The Seattle Times contest.
