We traveled through the Gallatin River area on our return to Bozeman and we are very happy we did. It is a very scenic trip and we didn't run into any delays. We traveled through here in mid October and were a bit surprised to...More

The river is beautiful. I saw a bunch of elk along it. In places it steaks up. Like much of the area the backdrop is amazing. A great spot.

Fished this with a brilliant guide from Park's Fly Shop. Met at 6:30am, drove for a while then hiked to the river. We then fished each pool in turn. Had 3 very nice brown trout in 2-3 hours - our biggest fish of 2 weeks...More

An absolutely gorgeous drive from West Yellowstone to Bozeman. We were pulling over every couple of minutes to take pics. Not to be missed if you're in the area.

One of our favorite drives on our vacation last summer was the day we drove along the Gallatin River. The scenery is truly gorgeous. If you are in the area near Bozeman, MT, don't miss it!

It is beautiful - breathtaking and stunning. As an amatuer photographer, I loved the opportunity. There is so much to take pictures of, that you almost go crazy trying to get it all in. This is a must when visiting!

There just no comparison. This is the most awesome fishing anywhere! At a fly fishing class I took yesterday, the instructor said the fish here have Ph.D's.

This river runs right by Yellowstone and it’s an excellent place to go fishing! There are tons of places to fish yourself or you can hire a guide. It’s also beautiful clear water for rafting too. Plus the countryside is absolutely breathtaking! Enjoy!

I know people who fish the river using worms and lures. Most of the guides cater to fly fishermen who are willing to pay the high price of a guided day(s) on the water. Look up any of the fly shops and give them a call... More

Storm Castle is between Gallatin Gateway and Big Sky off of 191. It is in the lovely Gallatin Canyon. You will see a turn off for it. It's a great hike. Be sure to wear sun protection and maybe don't make it your first... More
