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.
