Summary

Labyrinth and Stillwater Canyons is currently runnable with streamflow levels at 9070cfs, about -9% below the average runnable rate of 10000cfs. We recommend paddling this section of the Green River between a bare minimum of 1500cfs and a high of 22000cfs.

This class I journey is accessible from 2 different boat launch points along the Green River. Paddlers should prepare for some fun paddling along this run. Streamflow levels and subsequent run conditions for Labyrinth And Stillwater Canyons are sourced from the nearby USGS streamflow gauge at Green River At Green River, Ut.


This is the premier canoe run in the state of Utah.  Float from Green river to mineral bottom or go all the way to the confluence and get motored back to Moab.  Or bag cataract canyon if you can swing it.  Plenty of scenery, camping, and hikes. Weather on the river today will be partly sunny, with a high near 83. breezy, with a southeast wind 6 to 11 mph increasing to 18 to 23 mph in the afternoon.

Forecast Discussion

000 FXUS65 KSLC 161121 AFDSLC Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT 521 AM MDT Thu May 16 2019 .SYNOPSIS...Continued warm with locally strong winds today will precede a transition to much cooler and unsettled conditions for the latter portion of the week into early next week. && .SHORT TERM (Through 00z Monday)...Early morning water vapor and H5 analysis more clearly depict a transitional pattern evolution than just 12 hours previous, with the ridge that`s been overhead shifting further downstream while an impinging trough on the pac coast has further deepened/amplified upstream. Locally the eastern Great Basin remains beneath a strengthening SW flow aloft. Quite breezy most locales on Wednesday, even more so today with support from a sharpening MSLP gradient and strengthening H7 flow (35-45kts) late this morning through the afternoon. With encroachment of the aforementioned trough and cold front coincident, modest destabilization this afternoon coupled with a net increase of large-scale ascent within an increasingly diffluent environment will drive scattered convection across the western 2/3rds of the area as well. With vertical shear becoming increasingly strong this afternoon and boundary layer conditions remaining largely dry...the potential for isolated strong/severe winds remains a potential, but isn`t expected to be the norm. Have maintained the going wind advisory for most of the lower elevation valley locales due to the synoptic set up, while future shifts will handle any convective enhancement to that with short- fused warnings if needed. Cold frontal passage will translate west to east late day into the overnight hours tonight, lifting with a slight ENE trajectory as the parent trough transitions from near neutral to positive tilt in response to a strong near zonal jet max punching into the desert southwest. Post frontal CAA within a northwest flow will rapidly cool temps leading into Friday (some 20+ degrees vs. today), with snow levels lowering to just below 7kft as the trough translates overhead into Friday. Do expect fairly widespread precip, some mountain snow throughout the day, reinforced by a trailing short wave that will further enhance curvature Friday afternoon into the evening hours. .50-1.00 ...
