The Gallatin River is our “home water” here in the Bozeman MT area. Its headwaters are in the northwest corner of Yellowstone National Park. It flows for nearly 120 miles before it joins two other rivers to form the Missouri River near Three Forks, MT. Along the way, it flows through the area known as Big Sky which is often our launching point for fishing, rafting, hiking and just enjoying the area. Its also home to our “go to” fly shop along the river, Wild Trout Outfitters. Owner/guide JD Bingman has been helping Barb and I for at least 12 years and continues to put us on great spots with great flies. You’ll see some of our fish from this year in the video.
Big Sky is also an area where we take friends and family who come out to visit. The easy access to fishing along the river coupled with numerous things to do at the Big Sky Resort make this a destination of vacationers worldwide. In winter, Big Sky proudly markets their ski area as having the most skiing of any resort in the US.
Whether in the canyon, the meadows or up in the Yellowstone section, the Gallatin River truly is our second home. We hope you enjoy this music video highlighting our time along the river and in the area.
