Below Flaming Gorge Dam, the crystal-clear Green River offers splashy Class II rapids, interspersed with calm sections that inspire swimming, watching for wildlife and gazing at the canyon scenery. The river is teeming with trout, which has earned it the reputation of one of the country’s finest trout fishing streams. Flaming Gorge is an ideal section of river for first-time rafters and young families.
Not far from Dinosaur National Monument and halfway between Yellowstone and Canyonlands National Parks, Flaming Gorge Recreation Area is a popular summer and winter destination with an almost endless variety of activities available: boating, fishing, camping, hiking, snowmobiling, hunting, and cross‐country skiing. The area is is also rich in Western lore and home to hundreds of species of wildlife. Below the dam to Swallow Canyon Boat Ramp is 27 miles of crystal clear water teeming with trout which has earned the reputation of one of the country’s finest trout fishing streams, and with its exciting and splashy rapids, it is also a beloved and ideal section of river to enjoy from a raft.
On our Flaming Gorge multi‐day trips, we bring oar rafts and inflatable kayaks, and with sufficient interest, a paddle raft. Oar rafts carry our camp gear along with 2 – 4 passengers and are rowed by our guides using a long pair of oars. Inflatable kayaks are 1‐ and 2‐person boats that get you up close and personal with the rapids of Green river on Flaming Gorge. Paddle rafts carry 4 – 6 passengers, each of whom wield a single‐bladed paddle, working together to propel the raft downstream under the direction of your guide.
This section of the Green River offers splashy Class II rapids, interspersed with calm sections that inspire swimming, watching for wildlife, and gazing at the canyon scenery. Despite these slower stretches, the whitewater is consistent on the Green. You’ll challenge minor rapids plus dozens of smaller waves and riffles. The Green river through Flaming Gorge is ideal for first‐time rafters and children as young as four years, but not short on excitement for the whole family.
Minimum Age: 4 Yrs (7 at high water )
