The Gallatin River is hanging around 5,380 cfs right now. Not really fishable below the Taylor's Fork, but above may be ok if it stays cool at night. Stonefly Nymphs and San Juan Worms will certainly be top choices.

The Gallatin River is now flowing at 2,660 CFS which is huge a spike. It is now running very brown and we would recommend fishing elsewhere. Caddis, baetis, march browns, and stoneflies are around but the visibility is too low to effectively fish any of these. If your only option…
