A small stream with as many moods as the weather. For 38 miles, the Gibbon plays tag with the park’s main loop road, but each time you see it, you think it’s a different stream. Up above, below the three small ponds that birth and nurture it, the Gibbon sneaks under the Norris-Canyon road virtually unnoticed. But if you take the old road along the Virginia Cascades, there’s the Gibbon. This wonderful run of pocket water is not heavily fished because its brookies and browns are smallish, yet willing. Anglers with three-weights can have much fun here. Species: Grayling, brook, rainbow, brown. Angling methods: fly-fishing only.
