THE FLY FISHING CHRONICLES OF YELLOWSTON NATIONAL PARK (part 14)
The Gibbon River joins with the Firehole River at Madison Junction to form the Madison River. Ah, the Madison River is one of the most storied rivers in the Park however this story is not about the Madison River it is about the Gibbon River. The source for the Gibbon River is Grebe Lake, and is worthy of an article in its own right. Grebe Lake is located in the center of Yellowstone National Park and when the Gibbon leaves the lake it flows a short distance through a woodland and flows into Wolf Lake. After leaving the this lake it again flows through the forest before breaking out into a meadow and flows into Virginia Cascades before entering the Norris Valley.
