Congratulations to Marcus Naylor of Sammamish who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.

The trivia question of the week was:

This Puget Sound regional river gained fame by the likes of early 20th Century fly-anglers Zane Grey and Roderick Haig-Brown.

In 2001, this “fork in the river” got one of the more healthy winter steelhead smolt plants in the local streams, and anglers were catching them late last week, and this past weekend it opened for conventional gear and bait.

It can be a zoo at times during the peak of the winter steelhead fishery, but it also generates a good following of fly-anglers for summer steelhead.

The correct answer Naylor gave was Stillaguamish River North Fork.

“I grew up fishing for walleye and pike in Minnesota with my father and grandfatherm” Naylor said. “When I moved to Washington to go to school, I got introduced to salmon and steelhead fishing.”

“Ever since then, I have been hooked,” he said. “I like chasing fish all over the Northwest, but I am fortunate enough to fish a couple of times a year in Alaska for kings on the Kenai Penninsula and for silvers on Kodiak Island.”

“In Washington, I spend most of my time drifting the coastal rivers like Sol Duc and Humptulips for salmon and steelhead,” Naylor said. “One of my favorite and sure fire way to catch lots of steelhead is to fish with Native American guides on the Quinault river and tributaries.”

Naylor 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. 10. Winners are announced the following Friday.

Here are our rules for The Seattle Times contest.
