For good fun all day fishing action, hit the Gallatin. The action on the surface has slowed throughout the day but is still pretty solid in the evenings. Hopper fishing has still been pretty good afternoon in the valley. The canyon has fished best on the surface with small mayfly imitations and attractor dries. Nymph a black rubber legs with a lightning bug or a green machine behind it. For streamers, a natural Sculpzilla or a black Zonker should do the trick.

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.
