River Description


Christopher Pajak shared:
Tight and technical, short but steep rapids, enough wood to make you nervous - people have been pinned on logs here. One ~6-8-ft riverwide vertical drop over an old concrete diversion, not too sticky on the right, deep pool. Put in and take out where ever you want.

Ran this at 160 in packrafts. Seems like an ideal flow, much more and the over hanging trees/ bushes would be more of a problem. Few strainers, only a couple portages. Two class III+ drops. Lots of bush bashing in boats though. That said, its a beautiful river, clean, clear, sandy bottom, little pollution, a gem for Northern Utah. The ~7 mile section below the dam looks good too.

Green River Boat Passage Officially Open! - UT

4/6/2017
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.
