River Description

The relatively new walking path provides an easy way to scout the meat of this short steep run. Note the hole immediately below the interstate (left line), and hole toward the bottom of the steepest section, visible before the walking path turns away from the creek. There can also be a hole near the final road bridge. Wood can be an issue and this section should be bank scouted where possible. This run may require a willingness to hit rocks, and possibly break boats and/or paddles. "Manky" @300, was a 2017 report. 

2019, at the end of this section in the pond there is a cable-and-orange-buoy barrier; unclear if its possible to eddy before it, or what its for.

Gage Descriptions
180cfs + was the old recommendation, but this run seems mankier than it used to be. A 2017 descent around 300cfs reported many rock hits, and it could use more water, maybe 380-400cfs. 

Discharge: Big Cottonwood Creek @ Canyon Mouth

Green River Boat Passage Officially Open! - UT

Kestrel Kunz

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.
