Gallatin Meadows

Gallatin River near Big Sky, Montana.


A day spent fishing the upper Gallatin river on foot is spectacular way to spend a day.  This day was no exception.  We found great fishing, unsurpassed views, and a little break from the summer heat.  We strolled through the meadows upstream of Big Sky, throwing dry-dropper rigs.  The trout seemed most willing when the occasional cloud passed by.  We fished tricos for a bit in the morning, by mid afternoon we had switched to a size 12 stimulator with a bead head sparkle pupae behind it.
