Paddling from the Strawberry dam down is no longer recommended. The upper reaches are choked with river wide strainers and beaver dams, not to mention angry anglers every 150ft. That said driving up the Strawberry river road from the Pinnacles/ Camelot resort area and floating the 20 mile section to Starvation reservoir proved delightful. Moderate class II-I @250 CFS. About 1/2 a dozen portages, one fence. Very pretty, clean, with scenery unlike most of Utah canyon country. Probably doable down to 200 with some scraping and good up to 750 CFS.

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.
