The Gallatin is looking really good above the Taylors Fork and still good and fishable all the way through the canyon. The water is pumping hard, so be very careful, but the fish will be pushed right up against the banks and in the softer water pockets. Make sure your big stones, worms, and mayflies are ready to roll. The name of the game is big and heavy to plunge those deep soft pools. The fish in this river haven't seen pressure for close to a month, this can be fantastic fishing this time of year. For the next few weeks, each day the river will look better than the last. The next few weeks will be prime time on this river!
