The West Branch of the San Poil River in Okanogan County has some mighty slick sections.
Ya, I also have a pair that I've worn up there. The marks they leave on the river bottom also highlight the safe path as you wade down the runs.
Be careful stepping where you don't see any shiny marks..
Rock Creek, and the Provo. Both got me.
The trick to wading a slippery river, like the Thompson, is to wade deep enough so you can "ice skate" over the rocks while you are fishing. The bouancy from wading past you waist makes for much easier wading...
