Planning A Yellowstone Fly Fishing Trip - Gibbon River - Part 12
No, the trout in the Gibbon River don't average a very large size; however, In
one late June or early July afternoon, fishing for the trout eating the egg laying
caddisflies can easily produce twenty or thirty trout that average about eight to
ten inches with some of them much larger. I'd call that a good stopping off place.
Wading a shallow, small stream and hooking and catching one trout after
another probably doesn't suit everyone, but if you like small streams and plenty
of secluded action, this is one place you can count on it. I should also point out,
that although we haven't caught any, this stream is said to have Arctic grayling
in it. I'm told Grebe Lake, located at the headwaters of the Gibbon River, has a
healthy population of them.
