We wanted to learn how to improve our fishing expertise on the Upper Madison via walk/wading. Jimmy at GRG hooked us up (pardon the pun) with Trey, a very knowledgeable, patient, funny and expert guide. We caught over 30 really nice, large healthy rainbows and browns! And we learned a ton from him! Would definitely guide with Trey and GRG... More

I am providing a review for the fly shop. I thought the Gallatin River Guides shop was excellent. All the best equipment, very very friendly staff, and a modern / very pleasant store environment. They are right near the Gallatin and they have become one of my go to places now.

The folks at the shop were super friendly and helpful. My son (13) and I took a day float trip down the Yellowstone with guide Josh Osborne and had a great time. I highly recommend these guys.

We truly enjoyed our trip and... More

This was my first time in Montana, and I will be back! Pat was professional, prompt, accommodating, and friendly. He planned a mid- June walk and wade trip for my brother, my dad, and me. We arrived at the wonderfully stocked fly shop, met our guide, and spent the day catching big trout! Trey Braasch knows the Madison, but he... More

I chose GRG because of they had great communication and customer relation skills as I tried to set up a fly fishing guide on a last minute trip to Bozeman. Jimmy (manager) was outstanding and arranged my walk and wade with a highly experienced guide Peter, who was so knowledgeable and patient with me. It was a fun day on... More

He is one of the best guides I've ever fished with. Friendly, patient, incredibly knowledgeable, and fun to be with. He shared our enthusiasm over each fish caught. I can't say enough good things about him and the trip we took
