To say I am a novice fly fisherman would be giving me too much credit. Did a 3 day trip with GRGs and had a phenomenal experience and was completely enjoyable from beginning to end! As advertised all I had to do was show up and fish, everything else was taken care. My guide, Bob, was amazingly patient and an... More

Just got back from another trip to Big Sky. The fall fishing was excellent! We are very familiar with the Gallatin and the small streams feeding into it and will fish it on our own. However, we always like to use a guide to fish the Madison River. As we have for many years, we used Gallatin River Guides for... More

Max and Josh were our guides on the Gallatin today. All four of us, including two over age 70, are novice fly fishermen. To say these guys are incredible would sell them short! They were extremely patient, excellent teachers, and just all around great guys. And they put us on a lot of fish! Gallatin River Guides exceeded the expectations... More

My husband and I did a full-day raft trip and to say I was terrified would be an understatement. Our guide was so knowledgeable that she was able to warn us of any upcoming rapids and coach us through it. I felt like there was never an obstacle that I was not prepared for. Before we went, I was worried... More

All day trip: We were a group of 10 so we needed 5 boats and 5 guides. All 5 guides were great and very patient as none of group had ever fly fished before. Each group was taken to a different part of the river do we would not crowd each other. We fly fished on the Madison River. Beautiful... More

Our exposure was limited as we only booked a 2 hour intro for our family, but the guides were friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. They gave special attention to the kids and made sure they caught a fish. Highly recommend these folks.

My brother called very last minute to book a guided trip through them. Even though they didn't have any guides available, the person over the phone called around for us. What fantastic customer service! I wish I remember her name so I could have given her a shout in this review. The trip was a blast. Gary took us to... More

We did the "Small Fry" pond introduction in the morning and did a 2-hour river walk and wade in the evening. It was perfect. We have tried to interest our kids in fishing many times but the frustration level and whining has taken the fun out of it. Our guides taught the kids and were so encouraging. The kids did... More

Five of us, age range 8-75, fished the Taylor arm wih these guys, and had a wonderful time, despite cold weather and not-hungry fish. They worked hard to help a bunch of novices gain skill and safely navigate the water and rocks. We learned some helpful techniques, and had a lot of fun in the process. My eight-year-old grandson particularly... More
