Many channel choices at high water; lots of wood, but no portages in 2010. About 5 miles.
Put in at the 1000 East bridge for the best ratio of braids to rapids. Best scenery and whitewater are where the river wraps around a rocky point for a few miles.
You can take out just after the Highway 32 bridge on river right. There is a pullout and short trail before the pay station to get into the state park.
Ran this May 1 around 800 cfs and had only one small portage where the river braids, about a mile or two down from the 1000 East bridge. There are two moderately manky manmade drops in this section. I ran both on the right, although other lines are possible. There are a few decent on the fly surf waves in there but also plenty of wood on the sides to dodge.
Update: I've run this at levels from 500 cfs to 1600 cfs during May and June. The more water the better. Wood is constantly shifting so be heads up. There are a few fun, on the fly green surf waves at different levels. The Weber diversion can add 300-400 cfs to the last couple miles of the run. I usually put in at the 1000 East bridge, which is low and may be a portage at higher flows.
Fast run, fairly continuous paddling with a 750cfm flow. Two decent drops. First one easy to scout on left concrete retaining wall - ran just right of center, right of the small rooster tail. Next drop blind, immediately after right turn, stayed right and then had to paddle back to center immediately after the drop. At this flow more class II than I...definitely not the class I float advertised.
Occasional snags across one of the channels, so keep an eye out.

American Whitewater staff traveled to Green River, UT in late March to meet with private water users and state agencies, and to participate in the official opening of the new boat passage through the Green River Diversion (Tusher Dam). Completion of the boat passage has freed the Green River from its last in-stream obstruction between the Flaming Gorge Dam and the confluence with the Colorado River – over 400 floatable river miles through iconic canyons and historic landmarks. It has a been a long process, and our work isn’t over yet! As your boating representative, American Whitewater will continue to work closely with the dam operators and Utah’s Division of State Lands (FFSL) to ensure that the boat passage meets the needs of the public during its inaugural year.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
