Congratulations to Stan Pate of Kirkland who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.

The trivia question of the week was:

This lake nestled in the heart of Okanogan County ranks among the best producers of trout in the whole state.

This lake northeast of Winthrop covers 212-acres and gets a hefty fry plant of about 70,000 annually, which survive well and grow to big-sized proportions in this food rich lake.

Angler can always count on nice 10- to 11-inch trout during the April opener plus some bigger holdover rainbows. This past spring it also got a plant of 500 triploid trout right before the opener. The state park on the lake has more than 155 camping and RV sites with 11,000 feet of waterfront and a 60 feet of dock space along with four boat launch sites around it.

The correct answer Pate gave was Pearrygin Lakes.

“I’ve lived in Washington all my life and started fishing with my dad when I was very young,” Pate said. “He liked to go fishing after work in local lakes like Spanaway and Mineral, and we never missed opening day.”

“I think that’s why I love to fly-fish for trout in lakes,” he said. “My favorite spots are the Kamloops area in British Columbia, and the selective lakes in Central Washington. I also like to fish for salmon in Puget Sound, at the coast and in Lake Washington when it’s open.”

Pate 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, Jan. 21. Winners are announced the following Friday.

Here are our rules for The Seattle Times contest.
