Gallatin River Sponsored by
Date 17-Apr-18
Water Condition
Water Temperature  


Conditions : Gallatin River: Some of the best river conditions are here for now. The water has a perfect light shade of green and the temps are getting some nymphs active in the bottom. One of these is the Skwala. On Saturday they were just beginning to to reach the banks near the bottom of the canyon. If your lower in the valley there are some adults flying. The fish haven't keyed in on the adults but they are loving the nymphs. Bring some big olive Stones. You could try to force a dry fly eat and run a dry/dropper rig. Afternoons into the evening is finally starting to see some better streamer fishing. When the water is at its' warmest.

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.
