Anybody floated the Green River north of Black Butte

I figure it's a long shot finding someone here who has floated this particular stretch of river, but what the heck...
So, the area I'm talking about can be seen here...
pinedale, wy - Google Maps

The stretch of river between Black Butte and the start of the Forest Service land (the green area) north of there. He estimates it to be 8-10 miles.

My dad has been wanting to float this with my boys for fishing when the water get low/tame enough.
We're wondering if anyone has floated this and has any advice on challenges, how long it should take, etc.

We packrafted it last October when we source to sea'd the Green and Colorado... it was low, cold and SLOW. Endless meanders with amazing views of the Winds. Probably more like 15-20 miles of private land from FS land to BLM land, and it's illegal in Wyoming to set foot on the banks or in the riverbed on private land...potentially enforced with a shotgun. Plenty of moose and bald eagles.

There's a warm springs just upstream from the FS boundary, you should definitely check it out:
