River Description

A small, technical, deep, and beautiful canyon in Capitol Reef National Park.

This run is remote, and is commonly choked with debris, making this an all-day expedition. Once in the canyon, no easy exit is available and rescues by multi-agency teams are required for those who run into trouble. Although paddlers have done this run, Park Service personnel have determined that the upper Fremont is not a runnable stream.

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.
