Gallatin River Fishing Report, August, 2016

Gallatin River Fishing Great!

Monday, August 22, 2016
395 CFS@Gateway-The Gallatin River continues to be a great option for the local angler and the dry fly fishing has been good as well. The best fishing has been in the canyon and south of Big Sky into YNP in the meadow section of the river. Try small terrestrials and small attractor dries and if those aren't working try a stonefly and beadhead.

Fishing is Heating up on the Gallatin

406 CFS@Gateway-The Gallatin river continues to fish well as it has all this summer. Consistent dry fly fishing makes the Gallatin a great choice right now, terrestrials are really heating up as the Spruce Moths are slowing down. We have had great reports from the YNP section of the park with hoppers, beetles and ants producing some nice fish.

434 CFS @ Gateway - The Gallatin is low and clear at the moment but the fishing up in the canyon has still been great. Fish are still looking for the occasional hopper or spruce moth, but smaller terrestrials like ants and beetles have been catching the best fish lately. Nymphing the deeper faster runs will also catch some nice fish.

463 CFS @ Gateway - The Gallatin River has been fishing very well from the mouth of the canyon all the way up into YNP. Hoot Owl restrictions are in place from 4-Corners downstream. Spruce moths, hoppers and large attractors have all been good. Fish the spruce moth alone tight to the banks or add a dropper to fish the deeper runs.

Spruce moths on the Gallatin River

494 CFS @ Gateway - The Gallatin River in the Canyon has been outstanding lately as the fish have been chowing on spruce moths as they fall out of the trees. Casting a single dry has been very effective when fished in the morning in the shallows next to the bank. Afternoons have been good with a hopper/dropper fished in the faster runs.
