Reel Time trivia winner hails from Puyallup

Congratulations to Nathan Woods of Puyallup who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.

The trivia question of the week was:

The glacially free flowing river begins its long journey in a temperate national park rain forest before rushing out into the Pacific Ocean.

Many months during the winter and summer it runs high as the river swells up from heavy rains or melting snow, and can be unfishable.

A few years ago the river produced a massive steelhead weighing 29-plus pounds caught6 by a fly angler. The river which has a mainstem, and north and south forks settles into a valley is mostly flat and wide thus sediments flowing downstream create some large gravel bars.

The correct answer Woods gave was Hoh River.

“I started fishing at a young age with my father,” Woods said. “The earliest memories, fishing off the pier in the Puget sound with my dad, and catching nothing but bull heads and dogfish.”

I have more memories however fishing American Lake for trout, and kokanee growing up, but neither of these are my preferred method of fishing,” he said. “I really love drift fishing for salmon and steelhead, on the Green, Puyallup, Nisqually, Cowlitz, Skokomish, Hoh, Bogie (Bogachiel) and Sol Duc rivers. I discovered the joys of salmon fishing in mid-2002, and I even build custom rods.”

Woods 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, Dec. 3. Winners are announced the following Friday.

Here are our rules for The Seattle Times contest.
