If fishing is what you are looking to do, then refer to the Montana Treasures’ Gallatin River Photo Map to discern where on the river you want to fish.
Many of the photos are taken adjacent to some prime camp ground locations, as well; so, take note of where you may want to camp. You may even be able to figure out where in the campground you want to set up camp.
