The Green River, just below the Flaming Gorge dam, is a Blue Ribbon Fishery and a very popular recreation destination. Special limits on this body of water result in fishermen catching lots of Rainbow, Cutthroat, and Brook trout in the 15-19″ range. Fly fishing is the most popular, but an angler with a spinning rod and maribou jigs can do just as well. Many people fish this seven mile strech of water while floating in a raft or boat (motors prohibited), putting in at the dam and taking out at Little Hole. Rafts can be rented several of the businesses in Dutch John. There is also a trail for on-foot access.
