Fishing Conditions

September 22, 2022

The Gallatin in the Canyon is fishing great. Hoppers are at their tail end, you won't see too many out there, but they're still getting some fish to rise occasionally, especially being used as an indicator fly. We have all been running foam attractors, chubbies, hoppers. Behind that we have been fishing various small flashy nymphs, perdigons, hare's ears, prince nymphs and stoneflies. Blue, Purple and Red have been great dropper colors lately. If you want to go dry or die, fish a chubby as your top fly and an x-caddis or missing link caddis as your dropper. Keep your eyes peeled, We should start to see some fall baetis out any day with these colder temps upon us.
