Current Conditions:
Water temps remain very good in the Gallatin Canyon. The spruce moths are winding down but still a good option in the morning. The best fishing in the canyon has been with small nymphs on 5x fluorocarbon early in the morning. Use technical patterns like RS2's and midge larva to fool these trout that see some flies. The terrestrial fishing in the valley has been OK with ants and hoppers. The evening rise has been good every night and a good way to kill the last hour of the day.

The Month Ahead:
Fishing during the next few weeks will be similar to the current conditions. Go small and light when nymphing for the best results and dry dropper just before dark.

Long Term Fishing Forecast:
Fall produces some decent baetis hatches on cloudy days. The lower river by Logan is also a fun place to target some bigger browns in October. We don't fish the canyon as much in October and prefer to go after massive browns on the other rivers in the area but if you want a nice small wade fishery without many other anglers the Gallatin is fun in the fall.
