Conditions : Gallatin River: The river flow had a small rise from the warm then wet weather. This will add a little green to the river which we love on the Gallatin. Rainbows have podded up for the coming winter. They have moved into the deeper pools behind riffles and turns in the river. Nymphing is the way to get into better numbers of fish. Make sure you are bumping bottom with them. During winter the length of your leader can make or break the day. Some of the deep holes in the canyon need a 12' leader/tippet length. The fish are bellied down to the bottom since the water temps have dropped. They are wanting to be in the warmest water they can find which is at the bottom of the river during winter. The deeper the hole the warmer the water will be at the bottom. Since the Brown trout and Whitefish have both spawned, egg patterns are almost a must have fly pattern.

About: - The Gallatin River is about twelve miles long from its origin at the confluence of the West and East Gallatin rivers to Three Forks, Montana, where it joins the Jefferson and Madison rivers to form the Missouri River. The river flows through a narrow valley consisting of agricultural and grazing lands at elevations less than 5,000 feet. The banks are primarily undercuts, and long, deep pools provide much of the fish cover. Except for the East and West Gallatin rivers, tributaries to the Gallatin River are limited to a few spring creeks. Water can be slightly turbid year-round due to the sediment input from the East Gallatin.
