GROS VENTRE RIVER AT KELLY, WY
500 - 4000 cfs
David Garrity shared: "The run gets pushy and recovery is more difficult above 2000cfs. It's still reasonable at 3500cfs or so." Gauge is based on a recommendation from David Garrity.
The Wild and Scenic Gros Ventre River below Slide Lake is a classic, convenient, and fairly
popular whitewater run for Jackson area residents and visitors alike. Paddling is
prohibited by Grand Teton National Park on the lower half of this run, beginning at the Park
Boundary. Take out at the Park Boundary to avoid violating this prohibition. Below
the Park Boundary rapids continue upstream of Kelly. Below Kelly the river appears to offer
a scenic (though still prohibited) float trip to the Snake River.
Lat/Longitude data are very approximate.
