That is the general thought, but some people who were around Yellowstone and in the know when the lakers first showed up have pretty good info indicating the NPS may have had more to do with it than anyone is admitting...no way to prove anything though so don't take this as gospel...

I don't know enough of the details to draw conclusions, but I know one thing: the Gibbon River is crammed with Brookies. As posted earlier (see link), I caught 100 in 6 hours there this summer. Maybe that's a problem, but I thought it was wonderful! Great place for kids to catch something in a beautiful setting.

And if they're looking to return the place to pristine, start by ripping up the highways and parking lots!

I think things are generally beyond repair at this point. Let nature take it's course.

Yes, that upper Gibbon like that is a great place for kids to learn and have fun. Same for upper Gardner near Indian Creek Campground. A kid can catch fish with dragging flies and poor casts. I hate to see that part of the fun taken away, though I will say the though of going after Cutts in streams like the upper Gibbon is appealing.
