Any advice is appreciated!
It is getting kinda low everywhere in this area that time of year but here are some options.
1. Colorado from moab down to spanish bottom 50 miles of pretty flat water - requires taking a jet boat back out - about 100$ per person
2. Green down to the confluence of the colorado - requires the same jet boat ride - about 50 miles I think but I havent done it -
3. the San Juan is great. bluff to mexican hat ( 30 plus miles) or mexican hat to clay hills crossing (50 plus miles) but both require a permit by lottery until november 1 - after november 1 you can get a permit at the blm office in montecello - water level might be too low then
4. ruby horse thief canyon (25 miles) on the colorado
