Flaming Gorge Utah run A and B

Is this a difficult run for a canoe? I'm looking to go late the last week of June.

Yeah, other than red creek rapid it's all easy drop-pool kind of stuff. You can scout red creek and see what you think, but I have seen it run in a canoe.

Have Fun!!!

It depends on you. If Red Creek looks too weird, you can easily line your canoe thru river left.

I was fishing above little hole one day and low and behold here comes an oar floating by so I pick it up and put it on shore. A bit later here comes an overloaded canoe towing half a canoe behind it. I gave them their oar back.

Difficult no but there are definitely things you need to be aware of that can wrap or dump a canoe pretty easily depending on your skills and stability/agility of your canoe. This particular group had wrapped on the rock in Mother-in-Law that eats quite a few boats every year. Just do your research and you should be fine.

We floated the next day and sure enough that rock was colored bright canoe red and I think it stayed that way for some time after.
