Congratulations to Bob Stockham of Kenmore who is this week’s Reel Time Trivia winner.

The trivia question of the week was:

This little river that feeds into northern Puget Sound bay and flows directly under I-5 through valley farmlands offers an angler a chance at late-summer kings, but has been dogged recently as “snag city.” Many landowners on the eastern banks of the river have shutdown their access with some now charging fees.

It is commonly referred to as “The Ditch” and the aesthetics aren’t like being on a pristine northern Olympic coastal river, however, it can generate some excellent king fishing in late August and September for kings 10- to 30-plus pounds.

The correct answer Stockham gave was Samish River.

“I am a Seattle native of 64 years (and) I first tried salmon fishing in Puget Sound in 1976, and I was immediately hooked,” Stockham said. “I have fished Neah Bay, Sekiu, Swiftsure, Westport for salmon and halibut.”

“One of my favorite spots is casting buzz bombs off the beach for salmon at Lagoon Point, Whidbey Island,” he said. “Two years ago I discovered river fishing in the Skagit, Sol Duc, and Bogachiel. Still working on my first steelhead.”

Stockham 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. 28. Winners are announced the following Friday.

Here are our rules for The Seattle Times contest.
