Level 2+ trip — You must be able to handle a canoe, kayak, etc., in moving water and fly fish from it. Opportunities for fly fishing instruction will be limited. Some short portages will be likely depending on water conditions.

Number of Spots: 12

A KY Fishing License is required. Click here to purchase.

Outing Details: This is a float trip since bank and wade fishing are extremely limited. We’ll be targeting smallmouth bass, but other species are abundant. Watercraft will be limited to kayaks, canoes, and the like as sections of the river are shallow and some portaging may be required. Rental kayaks and canoes are available, click here for more info. Personal Floatation Devices (PFDs) are required, so if you’re bringing your own watercraft be sure to bring a PFD. There are several floats available ranging from 2 to 8 hours. We’ll work out launch and take out access points and shuttles on a day-by-day basis.  Click here for a map of the Upper Green River with watercraft access points highlighted.

Lodging: There are three types of cabins plus two RV Hook Up sites. Click here for more information on the cabins and RV Hook Up sites.

Payment due at signup.

Cabins #1, 2 & 3 – accommodates 2 (bunkbed) people each, $45 per person per night (total $135 for three nights), we have three of these cabins.

Cabin #4 – accommodates 2 people, $50 per person per night (total $150 for three nights.) This cabin is a little bigger than 1, 2 & 3, it has a double bed and a sofa bed.

Cabin #5 – accommodates up to 4 (bunk beds), $30 per person per night (total $90 for three nights.) This cabin is designed for 6, but we’re limiting to 4 since it’s a bit tight for 6.

RV Hook Up – We’ve reserved the two available sites. Cost is $20 per night per site (total $60 for three nights.)

Meals: The cabins have limited kitchen facilities (small refrigerators and microwaves) and outdoor grills. The campgrounds are in the heart of Greensburg so there are several eateries nearby. You’ll be on your own for breakfast and lunch. Depending on the desires and willingness of participants we can prepare a shared evening meal, organize an outing to a local restaurant or, explore the culinary offerings of Greensburg individually.
