  1. If you go to the Green River, Flaming Gorge section, do get a float guide and pick his brain. Several years back, my friend and I had headed out on a 10 day fishing trip. Hired an excellent guide for the first day. We brought our float tubes thinking this could be a great water for float tubing. Just prior to our getting lines wet, we heard that the boat guides were required to carry an extra oar. I can understand the concern, but oars are not the same as paddles. Needless to say, this did not go well with the guides. They complained stating that if they had to have an extra oar, float tuber’s had to have an extra fin. Things got and remain absurd. Something to keep in mind when setting up your fishing trip. Only if you plan to float tube live waters. We wade fished the next few days.
