    ---------
    .. Nothing fancy; big flies that look like a sack of groceries to any hungry trout.
    .. This section of the Gibbon River, below Virginia Cascade, was fishable for about two hours this afternoon, (Thursday, 6/12/08.) It probably won't come back into shape for another 10 days.
    .. Despite the rosy reports from many sources - conditions guarantee that picking your water is, at best, an "iffy" proposition.
    .. Make a lot of new friends when you get here - hire a guide who's seen this before - pay your money and take your chances.
