Congratulations to Michael Sullivan of Everett who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.

The trivia question of the week was:

This 92-acre lake nestled on an island in northern Puget Sound with community homes surrounding much of the shoreline is open to fishing year-round and fly-anglers flock to it for they chunky rainbow trout that lurk in its relatively shallow waters with a 20-foot in the middle of the lake.

There is a gravel boat ramp on the north end and virtually no public shore access to fish from outside of the area around the launch. It is mainly a chironomid fly-fishing lake, and many troll deep with a woolly bugger.

It provides a fairly good number of carry-over rainbows that can grow to 16 or 18 inches long, and some even larger weighing in excess of 2 pounds.

The correct answer Sullivan gave was Lone Lake.

“I have been fishing as long as I can remember,” Sullivan said. “My dad was an avid fisherman and we fished all over Washington state as well as in northern Idaho. I continued on fishing as I grew up and some of my fondest memories of my dad are of he and I fishing together. Fishing is a gift a parent gives to their child that lasts for a lifetime.”

“I like all kinds of fishing including fly-fishing at Lone Lake as well as some of the quality waters in eastern Washington and sometimes I like to go to northern Idaho to fish the Saint Joe River,” he said. “I also bass fish on both sides of the mountains and I love to salmon fish in the Snohomish River. ”

“Really, if there is some kind of fishing to do I am up for it!” Sullivan said.

Sullivan 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, Nov. 19. Winners are announced the following Friday.
