Booked a "Skwala Special" float at Red's with my friend Nate Boggs. Showed up at 10:00 AM to meet our guide for the day, Leif Kvinsland. After launching we anchored up just downstream of Red's to rig up and work the run a bit with a two nymph rig under an indicator. Not more the 5 minutes in Nate hooks up with a good fish that jumped and made the three of us gasp. After a 15-20 minute battle that involved chasing in the boat twice the thing hunkered down and we floated over it with the line ending up catching in the chain anchor pulling the hook loose. Pretty sure this was a steelhead and gave us quite a thrill to start our float. On a whole the day was slow, which made the numerous long-line-releases very frustrating. Brought to the boat was one nice whitefish and one 10" rainbow. We did hook some other fish with size but as I said they came unpinned. One that we got a good look at in shallow water looked to be rather large whitefish. In spite of the few fish hooked and fewer landed we had a great time getting to know Leif. This young man worked hard for us and was a joy to spend a day with. I have purposely chosen to exclude the description of my artistic exit of the boat before lunch, but I did have to explain why my clothes were damp when I got home.
