Gallatin River Full Day Guided Fly Fishing

Enjoy a Walk and Wade fly fishing trip with an experienced guide on the Gallatin River. There is no fishing from a boat allowed on the Gallatin, so your guide will be able to take you to some great holes and give pointers on how to improve your skills. These trips are really designed for folks with at least a little fly fishing experience, but who still have a desire to improve, to learn this river area and enjoy a beautiful day outdoors!

The River

The Gallatin River starts in Yellowstone Park, one of the purest water sources in the world. For 50 miles, it flows through rocky canyons and picks up more pure mountain water from crystal clear tributaries. It is a paradise for trout and a world famous fly fishing stream. The Gallatin River offers excellent “dry fly” fishing in beautiful surroundings and has famous scenery seen in the movie, “A River Runs Through It.” The trout are not picky eaters here, which makes the Gallatin River an excellent place to learn how to fly fish. The brown trout and rainbow trout average around 12 inches, with 16 inches considered a large trout – although some Biggies exceeding 20 inches can be found!
