We offer much information about meadow streams such as in Fall River Basin, along upper Slough Creek, and Pelican Creek which is on the rebound. Size of the fish, scenic beauty, and solitude make these places among the most enjoyable that can be visited. For many anglers seeking meadow streams, however, the problem is the long walks required to reach the best waters on these. Let’s suggest some meadow streams that do not require hours of walking to and from. The Lamar River above the canyon is fishing well now. So are the Gibbon River in meadow reaches above the canyon, lower Slough Creek, and the Lewis River below the Falls and adjacent to the South Entrance highway. Very large trout reside in each of these, and for each of these waters you need to be stealthy and knowledgeable with respect to approach. Terrestrial patterns, PMD life cycle, damselfly life cycle, patterns for diminishing brown drakes are best for now, and in these warm, bright days the axiom “fish early, fish late” applies. But being adjacent to major roads means that many anglers will accompany you on each of these. So we offer a meadow stream on which you cannot expect little or no company, is in beautiful country, hosts a variety of very large trout, and requires a minimal walk.
