Conditions : Gallatin River: Winter Has arrived in full force and that always makes the Gallatin one of the best options around. On Freezing cold days, like we are expecting in the next week, there will be some serious ice flow throughout the river. When things begin to warm back up, The canyon is fishing really well and the valley is producing well on certain days. Nymphing is the name of the game in the winter on this river. Standard fare includes worms, rubber leg stones, and midges or small mayflies. Try a 9 foot 3x leader with enough weight to get to the bottom. Keep the flies low and in the slow water. Streamer fishing can also be good this time of year but think small. Small wooly buggers in dark colors will get the job done! Dry Fly fishing is spotty this time of year but if heads are coming up a Griffiths Gnat or any small midge will get the job done. As with all rivers around our area, please be cautious of spawning fish and never target fish on redds.

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.
