Montana's Gallatin River: Old Reliable

September 21, 2007 By: Marshall Cutchin

Ed Dentry notes that this summer and fall the Gallatin is getting more than its normal share of attention as fishing restrictions and river closures bring anglers to its normally fast-running waters. Despite lower water levels that make it “bonier” than in past years, the Gallatin has managed to deliver something for everyone, even if many locals hope it is not an annual occurrence. “The angling exodus from other destinations boosted the tourist trade along the Gallatin. But it wasn’t necessarily good for Gallatin trout, which bore the brunt of Montana’s fishing traffic.” In the Rocky Mountain News.
