East Gallatin River Report

Current Conditions:
The water on the East is low and the trout are spooky but the trico hatch is thick every 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:
The report above should hold steady into early September.  

Long Term Fishing Forecast:
The East generally fishes well in September with a mixed bag of late tricos, early baetis and some mahogany duns along with terrestrials.  Late September and October can produce some nice baetis action on a cloudy day. Larger brown trout will start to filter in with the onset of their spawning season as we move into Fall.
