429 CFS @ Gateway - The Gallatin has been fishing well from the valley all the way up toward Big Sky with water temps in the valley being a bit warmer.

Wednesday, October 11, 2017
The Gallatin River has been a great option so far this week. Try a copper john or lightning bug trailing off of a rubber leg. Wooly buggers or sculpin patterns could lure those bigger fish out from the shadows. There could be some dry fly opportunities in the evenings with a BWO or Adams pattern being good bets.

516 CFS @ Gateway - The river has cleared up considerably this week. Nymphs are the most productive method with larger, darker attractors proving to be the better choice. Dry fly fishing may pick up in the shallow runs. Streamers followed by a smaller nymph could be worth a shot.
