Originating in Yellowstone National Park, the alpine-like Gallatin River provides great whitewater and good fishing as it courses through one of the most scenic valleys in Montana. The Gallatin River actually consists of two forks, the East Gallatin and the West Gallatin rivers.
Because of the West Gallatin is substantially larger, it's generally recognized as the mainstream river. while both branches are floatable, they differ sharply in character. A difficult whitewater stream with Class II, III, and IV rapids in the upper 40 miles. Very technical, experts only at high flow. Great fall duck hunting from Logan to Trident. A birder's paradise.
