Green River Info
 
First time on the Green River... Pretty Excited... Looking to do a full day float trip with the wife. I am still a beginner but have some experience. She has zero experience.

- Any recommendations for outfitters, more specifically guides (patience a strong attribute considering our overall experience)

- Section A or B, both? I have heard the A run is a bit more scenic.

- Plan on using my 9' 6wt.

- Any and all suggestions welcome.

Cheers

I'd definitely recommend doing the "A" Section first. They call that section the aquarium, when you see it you will understand. The river flows through a deep canyon that is probably 1,000 ft deep, it is just flat out gorgeous. The estimated fish count there is in the neighborhood of 10,000 fish/mile, it will mostly be rainbows, cutbows, cutthroat with a few browns. The "B" Section is just the reverse, mostly browns with a few rainbows thrown in. The wife will definitely enjoy the float. I can highly recommend James Boehm as a guide, he works for Old Moe Guide Service.

Colby crossland at Spinnerfall and John Sparger are good guides. Colby is a friend. Definately do the A section first,

Thanks for all the information guys. Much appreciated.

Really looking forward to the trip. I'm trying to set the schedule where we are on the river on a Wednesday to avoid traffic. Ill upload some pics afterwards.

Cheers.

Good idea, the weekends can get pretty busy, plus the tubers really like that stretch of river.

Old Moe all the way, seems like they are all good guys and love their waters.

I will be out there end of this month, be staying with some the guys and girls. Lucky me I know! Last weekend my friend fished with Cody and said big bugs on top, so I'm real excited and hope they are still looking up when we go.

Waiting for that update, I'm getting really excited for our trip. Could use more motivation and insight as to how the fishing is.

Can't provide a word of 'information' but with these trips to water(s) I'll never see, I love Google Earth and the 'fly by' function. What you see in areas below dams is 98% likely what you'll see 'boots on the ground.'

A vicarious thrill.

In my experience the "A" has always produced more brownies than anything. At least since I have been fishing it anyways.
