Green River ABC in October?

I understand they ratchet down the dam release. I saw another thread but couldn't find it. Is there enough water at the put in for the A section to get a trailer in the water? I will be rowing a pretty big boat, however big tubes don't down sit in the water as deep and smaller boats therefore I may be okay in the shallow wide sections.

thoughts?

It's my understanding that they rarely, if ever, drop the flow below 800 cfs. That's still plenty of water to launch from a trailer.

Oct. is our favorite time of year up there. As basinrafter said, plenty of water. I think they're still generating power, so it goes up to around 1400 during the day. Have a great trip.

Only thought with low flows is you might want to unload passengers above Red Creek and have them walk down. Run river left and you'll be fine.

Good to know. I will be rowing a 22 foot snout that is hardly loaded. The tubes barely sink since they are gigantic.

SICK!!
Keep telling my girlfriend we're getting a Snout rig, and she thinks I'm kidding!

You probably know about the tides from being so close to the dam up there, but water usually drops during the night, and boats can be parked on rocks in the morning when you get up, so careful where you tie off for the night.

Have a great trip!

22'- you better keep it real straight through Red Creek if it's 800. Nothing dangerous but there are some grabby rocks and your boat is longer than the channel is wide.
