Default Re: Madison Valley or Gallatin Valley help needed

Swingley? It sounds like you were fishing the west fork of the boulder. That is pretty much creek fishing. There is, however, a nice meadow section about 3 miles in from the forest service cabin. Might be worth your time but there is a lot more water to fish with easier access.

What I was referring to is the main Boulder. If you head east on I-90, get off at the first Big Timber exit. Here you have a couple options: you can drive through town where eventually you'll cross a bridge that goes over the Boulder and there is a state park. There you can access the river and easily find good water.

The other option is as you are coming into Big Timber hang a right on McLeod rd. This road takes you up into the Boulder Valley. There are several bridges along the way which provide good access.
