Planning A Yellowstone Fly Fishing Trip - Gibbon River - Part 6
As you can see, there's one little section where the current breaks the smooth
surface of the water and that's where Angie is concentrating her cast. Along the
inside banks of the stream and along some that are almost straight, there are
some serious undercuts. This is where the large brown trout reside most of the
Another one of our favorite methods of fishing the smooth sections of the
Gibbon River is to walk upstream along the banks and fish the undercut banks.
This requires presentations that stay within inches of the banks. Most of the time
we use stonefly nymphs or streamers. We have caught some nice brown trout
doing that. If you visit Yellowstone National Park during the early part of the
season, the upper Gibbon Meadows are great areas to try.
