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

We had three guides for five people. We opted for half day. My 14 yo avid fisherman went solo with a guide. The other two were one adult and one tween per guide. Everyone had a great day. GRG provided all gear including waders, poles, flies etc. GRG has fantastic guides and staff. We visited the shop many times after... More

Highly recommend! Our guide, Rick, offered great advise. Was my 12 y/o son's first time fly fishing and Rick had him hooking and catching trout! An experience we will never forget. Definitely going back to them on our next trip.
