Congratulations to Bill Dolson of Buckley who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.
The trivia question of the week was:
This year-round trout fishing 262-acre lake is planted with tens of thousands of trout, and is by far one of the most popular and productive fisheries in Pierce County.
The most popular way to catch trout is stillfishing with Berkley Power Bait off the public fishing dock located on the north end of the lake, and boaters seem to do best on the southern side.
The shallow areas in the south side of the lake produce good catches of bass and perch in the spring and summer. The county park has a boat ramp, and is a popular daytime use area for picnics goers and is located about 10 miles south of Tacoma and near a popular golf course.
The correct answer Dolson gave was Spanaway Lake.
“I started fishing as a kid with my dad and grand pop back in New Jersey (fishing for flounder and weakies) and have had a passion for it ever since,” Dolson said. “Now, I love to take my 10 year old daughter, Marissa, fishing for trout.”
“She enjoys fishing and usually catches the first fish,” he said. “I believe it’s important to introduce kids to fishing and outdoor activities, so they can appreciate what Washington has to offer. I also enjoy fishing for salmon on the Snohomish River with my brother in laws Greg and Joe. Fishing for Sockeye on Lake Washington is always a thrill, but we haven’t been able to do that for awhile.”
“I enjoy fishing for large and small mouth bass, rainbow trout, and salmon,” Dolson said. “I usually fish at Kapowsin, Tapps, Steele, Ohop and Tanwax. I have a lot of memories at those lakes and they’re close to home. I recently starting researching Spanaway for fishing so it’s funny that was the answer to trivia question.”
Dolson 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. 26. Winners are announced the following Friday.
