Conditions : Gallatin River: The Salmon Flies are done. You may run into a random bug or two, but the fish are no longer keyed in on the big bugs. This means that it is time to get locked in to summer tactics out on the Gallatin river! Chubby dropper is still a great option but down sizing the chubby and the dropper is key. A size 10-14 chubby with a smaller flash back PT or hares ear is a great option. Lightening bugs, spankers, and prince nymphs won't do you wrong either. The fish are moving back into the mid river runs and pools so targeting these areas is most definitly a good option. In the evenings there are so many caddis out you will most likely eat some yourself. The lower river is starting to get warm during the heat of the day, however, the canyon is a great option under the shady walls and under the willows. This will be a good place to be the next few weeks!

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.
