What is The Green River?

Learn more about the location of the upcoming retreat.

The Green River is located in parts of Wyoming, Colorado, and Utah. The river’s 27-mile course is a riparian oasis that descends into Utah from the north slope of the Uinta Mountains, slicing through the high desert sandstone of Flaming Gorge. Forty to sixty degree water temperatures year round, ample water flow and the river’s varied, meandering structure combine to make The Green River a thriving fishery for large rainbow and brown trout. The preferred method of fly-fishing in The Green River is by drift boat.

Where Will Leaders Stay?

Leaders attending the retreat will stay in a recently built cabin at the Dutch John Resort. The resort is located at Flaming Gorge, and within 3 miles of the Flaming Gorge Dam.

This is the perfect setting to unplug and recharge with other leaders throughout the 3-night, 4-day experience.
