SUP A B and C on Green River

Has anybody paddled the AB and C sections of the green on a SUP? I want to do an overnight trip, starting on the A section and taking out at lower C the following day, but have yet to find any SUP trip write ups that have attempted the entire stretch.

I am on a hard paddle board (not inflatable) and would really like to know if the river is shallow or if there are any major rocks to be aware of, and how difficult it is getting around the rapids on section B.

The other option is to just paddle around the reservoir in the no wake zone and try to scope out a good camping spot somewhere on a secluded beach. Any information on either option is very much appreciated!

I did the ABC and took out at Swinging Bridge last weekend. The rapids in A will give you more trouble than the ones in B with the exception of Red Creek. I don't SUP but it's hard to imagine getting through all of that on a SUP. It's pretty shallow with lots of rocks.

I did it on a 4" drop NRS board in 2012 with all my overnight gear rigged on the board. I went all the way from the dam to the Lodore put in. I took 6 days but you could easily do it in less. FG was releasing between 800 and 1200 CFS at the time. Back then I was completely inexperienced at SUP and still found it to be a very approachable run. Red Creek was the only rapid that gave me any pause, and still not that difficult if you have a decently solid whitewater awareness. There's a way to sneak it left if you don't like what you see. Or portage left for that matter.
