                      Island on the Green River B SectionThe Famed Green River. From the headwaters in the Wind River Range down to its confluence with the Colorado River, the Green River has had a rich and flavorful history. Since the first native Americans arrived, this incredibly diverse river corridor has been home to the likes of John Wesley Powell, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Tom Horn, Curt Gowdy and of course the Green River Drifters. From Flaming Gorge Dam down to the Colorado border, the Drifters offer 30 miles of tailwater fishing. There are three uniquely different sections of river in which to float-fish. One or more of these is chosen strictly to benefit you, the angler.

Red Canyon (Section A):
Starting at the base of the majestic 500 ft Flaming Gorge Dam this section traverses seven miles down through a 2000 ft red rock canyon. This is the most popular stretch. With a proximity so close to the dam, this section tends to hold a few more fish. It is the perfect scenario for the novice to intermediate angler and our winter fishing trips.

Devil's Hole (Section B):
This section starts at the scenic river crossing of the ancient indians and fur trappers known as Little Hole. We float through many of the rivers deepest holes on this nine mile stretch of water. Our isolation escalates as accessibility becomes increasingly harder for the general public. It is in this section where we spend most of our overnights.

Brown's Park (Section C):
Brown's Park is a mid summer Drifters favorite. You'll be floating through a classic Zane Grey western novel. Starting near the historic John Jarvie Ranch in the heart of the Outlaw Trail, the river leaves Red Canyon for the open spaces of Browns Park. Fewer people, less pressure, wilder fish, bigger bugs, and stalwart winds! It's a tough equation to solve at times, but those other times will be named after the entrance to Swallow Canyon; Shangri-La.
