This river is much smaller compared to the Yellowstone or the Madison, and the state does not allow us to fish this river from a boat. Highway 191 parallels the Gallatin for over half of its distance giving fishermen many different places to access the river. The upper section from Yellowstone Park boundary to Bozeman holds the highest percentage of the trout population. We have some great hatches on the Gallatin River, and the fish on a whole are not a picky bunch. Using different attractor flies in the summer such as royal wulffs and trudes, you can have a very gratifying day. The Gallatin also has some beautiful scenery, and was one of the areas where they filmed the movie "A River Runs Through It".
