Congratulations to Ron Harris of Des Moines who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.

The trivia question of the week was:

This northern coastal river has a nickname that might not suit well for golfers looking for a par or birdie, but it does offer an angler plenty of good times virtually every month of the year.

Winter steelhead are the big draw as it gets a pretty massive smolt plant released from the rearing ponds.

The best winter steelhead fishing months are December and January, and it gets jam packed on a five-mile area from boat launch near the ponds downstream. Bank anglers also score a good number of steelhead in this same area.

The correct answer Harris gave was Bogachiel River.

“I grew up in Ballard fishing the docks at Shilshole as a kid for pile perch or whatever we could get, and fishing Area 10 (central Puget Sound) with my dad for salmon,” Harris said.

“I now live in Des Moines at Redondo, and primarily fish the salt by boat mostly locally in Area 11 (south central Puget Sound) and also the areas to the north,” he said.

“This year has been pretty good with great catches of salmon, halibut, crab and spot prawns. While most of my time is spent on the salt I’m thinking of taking up some river fishing,” said Harris who is also an active member in the South King County Puget Sound Anglers Club.

Harris 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, Oct. 22. Winners are announced the following Friday.

Here are our rules for The Seattle Times contest.
