Congratulations to Michael Lavigueure of Sultan who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.
The trivia question of the week was:
This west side tributary that feeds into one of the largest northern Puget Sound river systems has replaced many small streams as the premier early hatchery winter steelhead fisheries around.
The good action got started more than a few weeks ago, and it receives one of the biggest annual steelhead smolt plants. It hardly goes out of fishing shape even in the rainiest periods since it sits up at a higher elevation, and is located adjacent to North Cascade Highway 20.
The correct answer Lavigueure gave was Cascade River.
“My father started building wood drift boats in the 1960s in Bellevue,” Lavigueure said. “It quickly took off and he started Eastside Boats and we moved to Duvall, when I was four. Him and my uncle started building the first fiberglass drift boats and later my uncle and him split and my uncle started Lavro Drift Boats.”
“I worked in the boat shop until 18 while at the same time I commercially fished with my father from gillnetting salmon in Bristol Bay to trolling for salmon off the coast in Washington,” Lavigueure said. “At 25, I got seriously into sport fishing and built a 16 wood sled that many would recognize as I ran it all over Washington the past 15 years.”
“I now live in Sultan and spend a lot of time salmon fishing Puget Sound from Edmonds to Anacortes, and river fishing from the Cowlitz to the Humptulips to the Skykomish,” he said. “I share my time on the water with my family and friends.”
Lavigueure 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.
