While often overlooked in favor of places like the Madison from National Park Meadows downstream to Seven Mile Bridge, the Baker's Hole and the Cable Car runs, the Yellowstone at Buffalo Ford, Muleshoe Bend on the Firehole, the Lamar Valley and Slough Creek, the Gallatin near its confluence with Specimen Creek is a must-fish spot.  A cold river only in peak form for a few weeks per year, the Gallatin often fishes well at exactly those times in the summer when the Firehole and the Madison shut down due to overheating.  Some bushwhacking required to get to the spot where Specimen Creek enters the main river.  Highly recommended.
