East Gallatin River Fishing Report

Thursday, September 5, 2019

Current Conditions:
The water on the East is low and the trout are spooky but the trico hatch is still around in the morning and brings up some heads. It is best to arrive early since the risers go down around noon. In the afternoon, you can often entice a trout up with a hopper if you are persistent.

The Month Ahead:
Over the next few weeks water conditions shouldn't change much. We will start seeing some better dry fly options with the emergence of some baetis and mahogany duns starting to come off later in the month.  

Long Term Fishing Forecast:
The East can produce some nice dry fly fishing over baetis hatches on cloudy days into the late fall months.  For the persistent angler slow stripping streamers in the deeper runs can turn up a nice brown from time to time but don’t expect lots of action.
