The Gallatin has been decent when it has been fishable but with the warmer weather rolling in today it should be worth it to fish. Nymphing isn't your only option but it is your only good option as we move into the winter months. A Pat's Rubberlegs is the go-to top fly option all year long and this week is no exception. A Red Copper John, Two-Tone Zebra Midge, or just a classic Pheasant Tail nymph are all good options as a bottom fly. I would also concentrate on the deeper water and make sure your flies are getting down deep because that's where almost all the fish will be.

The Gallatin River is one of the more scenic, blue-ribbon trout waters found in the Bozeman area. The river changes in character from a small mountain stream near its headwaters in Yellowstone National Park to a medium-sized, classic western river once it flows into the Gallatin Valley. The middle portion of the river flows through the Gallatin Canyon and is characterized by pocket water and swift currents. Once it leaves the canyon stretch, the river slows its pace with much of the trout water being found in a classic riffle, pool, and run water types. The Gallatin River is noted for having very clean, cold water throughout its course and served as the setting in which much of "A River Runs Through It" was filmed.
