The Gallatin drainage offers a diversity of trout fishing opportunities unmatched by Montana’s other major rivers. The angler working the 40-mile canyon of the Gallatin River can choose among mountain stream riffles, boulder-dotted pocket water, surging runs, and deep pools. Below the canyon mouth, the Gallatin braids and spreads out to provide a selection of readily wadeable channels for the angler. The East Gallatin River represents a totally different fishing experience—a serpentine hay-meadow stream, lined with deeply undercut willow banks. Finally, the main Gallatin River, formed by the junction of the East and Upper Gallatin Rivers, hosts a full complement of steady runs, long pools, and gravelly riffles, along with an opportunity for solitude not often experienced on southwestern Montana’s other major rivers. Key species: Rainbow trout, brown trout, cutthroat trout, and whitefish.
