Rafting from Flaming Gorge through Cataract Canyon

I'm looking at trying to get a trip together for this fall rafting from Flaming Gorge through Cataract Canyon. Obviously the first step is to get a Lodore permit and build the trip around that. Has anyone done this that would have some helpful hints?

We would be looking to rent a motor for all the flat water, so if anyone has information on where to begin looking for rentals, please let me know. Also, if you would be interested in joining our efforts, let me know.

I've done it. 35 days March 20-April 24, 2009. Low-use permits for Lodore and Deso and easy to get permits for the rest. PM me and I can send answers to any questions you have, including dealing with the Tusher Dam above Green River.

If you use a motor on that trip you are a huge gaping weakling and should be beaten with oars until you learn. But don't worry, you won't have a need for it.There is PLENTY of current the whole way.

Suggested reading: Powell, Stanton, Holmstrom, and many others.

If I had all the time I wanted, I would love to do it without a motor. But after a few days of 50 MPH winds in Cataract a couple weeks ago, I'll wuss out and motor up.
