Unfortunately, every season there are several drift boats that end up on the bottom of the river. Lost fishing gear, risk of drowning, hypothermia, & hurt pride are the end result of these experiences. If you sink a boat on the Green River you are legally responsible to get it out. Boat recovery can run hundreds of dollars. Learning how to row a boat properly will result in safe trips, more fish caught and better tips from your buddies!
The Green River provides a huge variety of water types to help build your rowing prowess. Boulders, cliffs, class II - III rapids, narrow shoots, riffles, and open flat water can all be navigated.
Rowing Lessons should be done in your drift boat, but if you prefer, the use of a guides boat may be arranged.
