Fishing Conditions

December 29, 2022

The Gallatin in the Canyon should clear soon and fishing should improve. Watch for Ice dams and shelves. Baetis and midges will be your main hatch to match. We have been fishing various small flashy nymphs, perdigons, hare's ears, prince nymphs and stoneflies. Bigger white streamers immitate the spawning whitefish and sucker minnows well. Small natural streamers such as a Sculpzilla, bellyache or McCunes have been working great for us as well.
