The Gallatin River and Karst Camp

The Gallatin River starts in Yellowstone Park, one of the purest water sources in the world. For 50 miles, it flows through rocky canyons and picks up more pure mountain water from crystal clear tributaries. It is a paradise for trout and a world famous fly fishing stream. The Gallatin River offers excellent "dry fly" fishing in beautiful surroundings and has famous scenery seen in the movie, "A River Runs Through It." The trout are not picky eaters here, which makes the Gallatin River an excellent place to learn how to fly fish. The brown trout and rainbow trout, average around 12 inches, with 16 inches considered a large trout - although biggies exceeding 20 inches are sometimes found.

The Gallatin River is also the home to our Fly Fishing Center at the historic Karst Camp. This private river front property has access to a great fishing hole and also has plenty of space to optimize the learning process. The shop is open for rentals as well as home to our Learn to Fly Fish program.

The Yellowstone River
The iconic Yellowstone River is a main highlight of Yellowstone National Park, feeding and draining Yellowstone Lake, then dropping over the Upper and Lower Yellowstone Falls at the head of the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. It continues flowing north out of the Park as a wide, deep river carving through the magnificent Paradise Valley. Drift boats will seek the abundant brown trout, rainbows and native yellowstone cutthroat on this river known as one of the greatest trout streams in the world.

The Madison River
The Madison River is a headwater tributary of the Missouri River with it's confluence being in Madison Junction in Yellowstone Park. It is best known for brown trout, rainbow trout and mountain whitefish. With plenty of flow, this river will give a variety of angling options with the upper and lower sections as well as the Wilderness stretch through Beartrap Canyon.
