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!

The staff was great......the river conditions were awesome.......the equipment was all perfect. There were lots of people and at times it seemed chaotic, but the staff had things very well organized and things moved smoothly along.

Running thru the heart of the Bozeman Valley with easy access and hungry fish, or just a cool place to soak tired feet. Make sure you follow it all the way to Three Forks and a piece of history.

The water was cold! But we had a blast. I would definitely recommend scheduling a 1/2 day trip. You will get wet - but make it part of your scheduled trip.

The Gallatin offers a little something for everyone. Starts in Yellowstone park and ends at the Headwaters State park outside of 3 Forks MT. Upper river great for Fly fishing. Middle section that goes through the Gallatin canyon is great for whitewater rafting and kayaking....More

Most commonly, people think fly fishing. I have fished this river since the 90's - spring, summer and fall, and a bit in the winter. It constantly changes (water level, clarity), is constantly beautiful and I seem to always catch fish (the only time I've...More
