    Paddling the whole Green River

    Hey guys,

    I'm thinking of doing a Green River trip from Green River Lakes down to the confluence. Has anyone done it? Or done the Wyoming stretches? If you have I'd love to hear about it. Curious about what the put in/take out access is like, if there are any stretches that are a no-go or that I should be worried about. At this point, anything is helpful.

    Thanks!

    Heather

    Paddling the whole Green River

    I'm not a kayaker but I float the upper in Wyo all the time...fishing. There is only one stretch of turbulent water on the upper, below the lakes. I'm happy to answer any Qs.

    If by confluence you mean the confluence with the Colorado, then, yes I have done Ruby Ranch to Spanish Bottom. You need a jet boat ride up the Colorado to Moab, although I believe you could drive a 4x4 to near Spanish Bottom through the Maze.

    Permits necessary for the Canyon lands portion. All flat water from Ruby to confluence.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    Hey,

    I'd love to hear about shuttling, and putting together the sections. Can I shoot you some questions over email?

    Thanks!
