Description: Famous for its monster Brown Trout, its inaccessibility, and the Hexagenia limbata hatch. Most fishing is done by launching a canoe, finding a good bend and then waiting for the Hexes to hatch. Fishing this river is something you should try at least once, it is a unique experience. The White River flows through the Bibon Swamp. There is also an anadromous (I,E. Lake run) fishery on the White.
