if dinosaur canyon is the one with warm springs rapid and called yampa canyon in the bible, then you are hosed unless you know someone with a permit. the deadline for permit applications was jan 31. i also think that to get leftovers you needed to apply for the drawing, but i could be wrong. good luck! for next year take a look at kwagunt.net and click whitewater permits. they have a lot of permit apps with links. there are also many other sites with the same info, rivergeek.com is another.
Dinosaur Canyon is below warm springs all on the Green. It runs from the Gates of Lodore and the normal takeout is at the beginning of split Mountian. I think most (maybe all) permit deadlines were Jan. 31. Might have to find some new friends
