Looking for info on Green Rr. rapids in Dino. Nat. Mt.

A friend has a permit for Dino. in mid-August and we cant't seem to find much info on the 9 named rapids on the Green Rr. The guidebook shows the locations and I've read general descriptions on the river section including Powell's but haven't found any details on the individual rapids.
Do you know where there is a description, do you know the rapids and can give us a description of each?
I'm going to try and take photos and describe each rapid as we run them for future use.
Thanks, Tom

gate of lodore rapids

I ran the gates several time as a beginner kayaker since the dam control allows late season aug-oct runs. Levels will probably be low in mid-august and everything is pretty easy read and run. Some high center rocks in hells half for heavy rafts is really the only thing to worry about. When the Yampa is cranking Split mountain gets pretty big. Watch out for sqeeters in island park, try to make your last camp at joneser hole for a long paddle out but much more enjoyable last night.

I worked in Dino. for three seasons...beautiful canyon. expect 800-1000 cfs which makes all rapids similar to a game of pinball. and get used to scraping over rocks in the rafts. When we were there 800 was the legal minimum flow required for the fishery at Dutch John just below flaming gorge damn. Scout Disaster, Triplet and Hells

Big undercut wall far right at lower disaster. just stay left and weave your way through the barley submerged rocks.

big Hippo Rock in middle of Hells thats pretty unavoidable. bounce off it to the left if you can, the left "channel" is a bit more clear.

foot entrapments and "crushing by raft" most significant dangers. a bit sketchy as we were regularly out of our fully laden 16 footers prying them off of rocks.

Adventure/Guided tour?

Perhaps what you are looking for is a Guided tour, Not the adventure of rafting the Gates of Ladore?
