Fishing Conditions

October 26, 2022

The Gallatin in the Canyon is fishing great. Baetis and midges will be your main hatch to match. October Caddis are out and about as well. We have all been running foam attractors and chubbies as indicator flies. Behind that we have been fishing various small flashy nymphs, perdigons, hare's ears, prince nymphs and stoneflies. If you want to go dry or die, fish a chubby as your top fly and a sz 18-22 parachute bwo as your dropper. Bigger fish are starting to show up in the lower sections as well. 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.
