Ogden Narrows


For those boaters that live in Ogden this is a great intermediate to advanced run when the water is flowing.  Since this river is dam controlled, good flows can be sporadic but can also possibly last well into the late season (on good water years).

Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Ogden River are between a bare minimum of 200cfs and a high of 800cfs. River conditions sourced from USGS 10137500, the South Fork Ogden River Near Huntsville Remember only watercraft are permitted at Ogden Narrows.
