Gallatin River Specifics
Best Fishing Times
The Gallatin River typically fishes well thru July and August when runoff flows subside and river levels stabilize. We typically fish the Gallatin on the lower river with rafts or drift boats.
The Fishing Experience
The lower Gallatin River is a small, meandering stream with the classic western style of riffle, run, pool. Methodical nymphing or dredging streamers in the runs is a great way to land the bigger trout. Larger crayfish patterns are the choice for biggies. It's a long day, but usually pays dividends for persistent anglers.
Gallatin River Hatches
While the Gallatin River can get prolific hatches of Tricos and good terrestrials most of the fishing is subsurface. Crayfish are often the bug of choice, but occasionally stopping for risers on midges, baetis, or Tricos can produce good results.
