Gallatin River Fishing Report, December, 2014

Gallatin River Fishing Well

Tuesday, December 16, 2014
The Gallatin River has been fishing well during the day. It takes a while for that water to warm up, but once it does the fish have been fairly active. Nymphs have the way to go with Stoneflies, Caddis, and Midges leading the way. Streamer fishing has been solid recently as well, mainly down here in the valley. Look for midge activity as well on the cloudy days.

380 CFS ➡️ It's not often that we get a full week of temps in the high 30s and 40s in December. Lucky enough for us, it's happening. Fishing has been solid lately on the Gallatin River. Nymphing has been the way to go, with your standard Stoneflies, Worms, Caddis, and Midge patterns leading the way. There have been a few fish up eating midges around noon when the water warms up.

Most of the flow ice has melted off in the Gallatin River, leaving us with clear conditions aside from shelf ice in some spots. The next few days are looking like warming temperatures, so it will be a good time to get out. Look for fish to be holding in the deeper slower pools, and nymphing to be the way to get them. Worms, Czech nymphs, and Midge patterns will get the job done.
