  • Recorded:
  • Windy and Rain
  • 42 ° F 
  • Fishing: Poor
Brrr!  Been snowing hard in the Park and the mountains surrounding here.  Whacky weather!!  Sun-70s and really nice.  2 days later and extended cold front has us wearing our winter Patagonia wear and watching the white stuff fall from the sky again.  Enough!  River's not fishable.....

Sunshine!  River's heading up in flow again.  Still dirty.... It's got a LONG ways to go before it covers House Rock, but we'll get there. 
 
Gallatin River - May 21st, 2011
  • Recorded:
  • Windy and Rain
  • 50 ° F 
  • Fishing: Poor
While the river has dropped back in flow because of the cooler, wet weather we had that actually produced more snow up high, the river is not what I'd consider really all that fishable.  Just because the water graph says it's dropped a bunch does not mean it cleared up.

She's starting to go.....  Taylor Fork is throwing some definitely off color junk into the main river.  There's still a foot plus of vis, but it's going pretty quick.  River is on the rise too. Nymphing remains the most consistent means of feeling that tug on the end of the line. 
 
Gallatin River - May 4th, 2011
  • Recorded:
  • Mostly sunny
  • 56 ° F 
  • Fishing: Good
Continued good water conditions right now on the Gallatin look to continue for the next couple days or so.  Runoff may not be that far off, but for now- get out there and have a blast!
Nymphing remains the most consistent means of feeling that tug on the end of the line.  Midges and Baetis are present.  March Browns are more down in the Gallatin Valley area and there are fish still willing to eat Skwalla's on the lower river.  Fishing pressure is most prevalent on the weekend.  Especially as we get some nicer weather.  Seems everyone would like to get out on the water
