Gallatin River Fishing Report, April, 2015

Gallatin River Pretty Muddy This Morning

Thursday, April 23, 2015
865 CFS @ Gallatin Gateway - The Gallatin River has some mud moving down this morning. Runoff has to start eventually, and this could be the commencement. That said, if the weather cools down again, we could see the river drop and clear back into shape. We haven't had a definitive report on whether the stretch S of Taylor Fork is clear or not, but our bet would be that it is!

The Gallatin River Looks Ok

Monday, April 20, 2015
606 CFS @ Gallatin Gateway - The Gallatin is rising up a little bit and has a touch of color, but is still certainly fishable. It seems like the dirty water usually makes it's way down in the afternoons, so plan on that if you're headed out after work. Nymphing has been the way to go, with Stoneflies, worm patterns, and small Baetis type nymphs leading the way.

Gallatin River Is Muddy

Saturday, April 18, 2015
558 CFS @ Gateway - The Gallatin River has bumped up pretty good today, and has a fair bit of muddy water moving down. This could be the start of runoff, or it could slow back down if things cool down again. For now, before things get too crazy, you should still be able to find a few fish with the nymph and streamer rig. Don't forget your big Stonefly nymphs at home.

Gallatin River Clearing Up with Colder Weather

Thursday, April 2, 2015
494 CFS @ Gallatin Gateway - The Gallatin River looks to be dropping back down this morning after being on the rise the past few days. We haven't heard a great report yet on it's clarity, however we have to think that it's fishing well. In that transition from mud to green water, the Gallatin has fished great. Nymphing will be your friend today, however don't forget the streamers.
