Nice area to driver through and see. It's on your way from Bozeman to Big Sky. Very pretty drive. Definitely would recommend it
A great, easily accessible river. Just pull off highway 191 almost anywhere just South of Gallatin Gateway to Yellowstone National Park. Don't forget if you fish in YNP portion of the Gallatin you will need a permit from the Park
The Gallatin River is one of the most beautiful natural resources in Montana. Great bird life - eagles, king fishers, otters, American Dippers, herons, osprey - the list goes on. Fabulous fishing.
This was a good river this late in the season to have a family raft trip (kids of 9 & 6). Earlier in the year it would be higher water levels. This is a scenic trip with a lot of fun to be had. The group at Bozeman White Water guides were tremendous, focused on safety and very entertaining. Would... More
First White Water Rafting experience with Montana White Water. Great, friendly guide. Great family fun for all 3 generations!
I have fished all over the USA and this is the best place to fly fish for Browns and Rainbows. The other river that is just as good, The Madison. Watch for what is flying in the air and match your fly and watch out. AWESOME Fishing!!
The river was a bit murky and filled with rapids in certain areas thanks to the winter run off from nearby mountains. We stopped a few times to walk our dog on the banks and were taken in by the power, majesty and beauty of the entire area.
US 191 is a winding and picture postcard drive which follows the river from Yellowstone Park into Bozeman, MT. It can be icy and treacherous in winter, so drive carefully. You can have sightings of deer, moose, and mountain sheep occasionally, and the river offers class flyfishing. An occasional cougar has been reported near the camp grounds.
