East Gallatin River Fishing Report

 Current Conditions:
The water on the East is low right now and trout are spooky.  Use longer leaders and plan your first cast or pay the price of spooked trout.  The afternoon dry fly fishing can be very good with some cloud cover.  Stripping small streamers can also result in some nice takes from the bigger browns.

The Month Ahead:
The East should continue to fish well through November.  Mornings will start to slow as temperatures drop and the baetis hatch will eventually wind down.

Long Term Fishing Forecast:
The East has enough spring creeks feeding it that it is a viable winter fishery for those looking to mix things up and stay close to home.  Nymphing small bugs in the big deep buckets can produce.
