Default Madison Valley or Gallatin Valley help needed


Planning a trip to MT for the first week of Sept and prefer to wade smaller streams vs floating the larger ones. Spent a week out in the Paradise Valley area a couple of years ago and floated the Yellowstone and hit Armstrong's as well as Slough Cr in the Park. I could repeat this trip staying around Emigrant but wouldn't mind hitting some smaller streams and doing more wade-in fishing and am wondering if the Madison Valley presents more of this kind of water? Not opposed to using a guide for a day or two so if anyone has a suggestion of one that likes to wade I'm open to that for sure. The other factor is to limit the amount of driving to maximize time on the water. Put some miles on when stayed in Paradise Valley to get to the boulder and West Boulder and didn't get it right and felt like it was just too much driving. Maybe we passed right by good water and didn't know it...

Any how, looking for any advise one cares to offer even if just pointing to some good reference material. Have one of the recommended books (cant remember title but breaks the state up by watersheds).

Thanks much,
