Has some box canyons to paddle through that are far above the trailhead. Lots of wood to watch out for up there.

Hiked up about a mile to the confluence with Swift Creek. Paddled to the reservoir and then below to the bridge at Yellowstone Campground. Surprisingly free of wood (unlike the Uinta). Fast class II-III. Would be better with a bit more water, say 500CFS. ~6 miles. This looks to go for another 8 miles to where it crosses rt 7. Nice packraft.

Ashley National Forest (UT) Information Needed

11/15/2019
Kevin Colburn

The Ashley National Forest is in the process of updating its land management plan—something that hasn’t happened since 1986. This creates an opportunity to advocate for better protection of streams and rivers across the 1.4 million-acre National Forest, which spans from the Uinta Mountains to Flaming Gorge. Right now, American Whitewater needs your help updating the National Whitewater Inventory to include better information on the rivers within the Ashley National Forest. We ask that paddlers familiar with this area add photos and descriptions to the NWI, check out our recent comments, and consider sending a comment letter to the Forest.

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.
