Fishing Conditions

September 29, 2022

The Gallatin in the Canyon is fishing great. Baetis and midges will be your main hatch to match, BWO's on cloudy days and pseudos on the sunny ones. October Caddis will be out and about any day now as well. Hoppers are at their tail end so you won't see too many out there, but they're still getting some fish to rise occasionally, especially being used as an indicator fly. We have all been running foam attractors, chubbies and hoppers. Behind that we have been fishing various small flashy nymphs, perdigons, hare's ears, prince nymphs and stoneflies. If you want to go dry or die, fish a chubby as your top fly and a sz 18-22 parachute bwo as your dropper.
