The river is teeming with trout, which has earned it the reputation of one of the countrys finest trout fishing streams. Flaming Gorge is an ideal section of river for first-time rafters and young families.

I was especially impressed with the competence of the two guides, their attention to safety, and the quality of the equipment. The Green River itself presents many opportunities for adventure, but the guides made the most of it. The best example: selecting a spot to jump into the river from a 15 foot ledge.

This was our first overnight rafting experience. Yeti and Tony were our guides and they were fabulous. Two of us traveled with our 11 year old granddaughter. She successfully accomplished her first stand up paddling. I was pleastly surprised by the food on our trip. We were lucky with the weather. No rain and warm each day. Yeti needed to bushwhack his way to the second camp site and it had little shade. However, by the time we set up camp, the sun was behind the mountain and it turned out to be better than the first night's camp. If you go, tip your guides well. They work really hard to make your trip memorable.
