In the lower part of the run there is 150 yards of roadside III+/IV-, which splits the run into an upper section that is more beginner friendly, then the lower section, which can pack a punch at higher water. This stretch can be portaged, or you can just set your shuttle above it if you want. Below there is hard to scout without going into some private campgrounds; please be courteous.

They must have heard you! No fences and only one river wide log easily seen and portaged in May 2018. 175 cfs is plenty of water for packrafts. We put in at the dam.

900 and 1150 were good levels for the upper section in 2011. It would be a rare year that sees more than that on this run.
Above 600 the lower section crux is probably class IV.
At 400 cfs, our group concensus was IV-.
In a low water year like 2015, the crux section to the takeout was fun, if a bit bumpy, as low as 120 cfs.
Permits are not required for this reach.

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!
