Floated this today sun June 11th. Floated from roadside pullout about a mile below Upton through the narrows and took out a couple bridges down river. estimate we did 3 or 4 miles. 4 mandatory portages for barbwire fences, down cottonwoods, bridge at our take out with only 5" of air between the concrete and waters surface and the nastiest lowed damn I've ever seen in person. class 2 + for brush choked banks and few eddies at this flow, 293 cfs. keep looking downriver for the next hazard you will be upon it fast. Also locals are friendly but really don't want us on their fields. We managed to get out without confrontation but started our float a bit below Upton as the locals informed us of a few fences right in succession and the land they pay taxes on not being there for us. Apart from this they were still very friendly. Won't likely do again but glad we did.

Green River Boat Passage Officially Open! - UT

2017-04-06 14:07:00-04

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.
