Upper Greys (Lynx Creek To Little Greys)


This run isn't as hard as the lower Greys snaggletooth area but can still be challenging for the intermediate boater (especially at high water).  At flows over 2000 CFS expect a class IV to V rapid where the landslide has occurred. Daisy's Hole becomes a river wide hole at high water.  At normal or lower flows this run is an easier III or III+.

Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Greys River are between a bare minimum of 500cfs and a high of 5,500cfs. River conditions sourced from USGS 13023000, the Greys River Ab Reservoir Nr Alpine Wy Remember only watercraft are permitted at Upper Greys (Lynx Creek to Little Greys).
