    Launched at Mile Post 20 floated all the way to The Slab. Started at 9:30 nymphing with only 2 white fish to hand. About 11am we switched to dry Skwala patterns. Didn't see any drys on the surface but heard others say Saturday there were some on the water. Soon after switching my son hooked up with a nice 14 inch rainbow. Just below Umtanum I hooked a nice 18 inch cut. Got another 19 inch rainbow later and another 17 inch and 14 incher thown in. My son ended up with 4 rainbows with the largest 17. None below 14. Nice day. Dry's were the answer yesterday.
    Here are a few pictures for fun.
