  how many days ?
  Posted by: Mattt on Apr-01-13 10:37 AM (EST)

two days is "multi-day" so's 22 days

how long a trip are you looking for? - that makes a diff in what to recommend - I'll just add a few more suggestions

The Smith River in MT would work - its a permitted river, but you could check for mid-week openings or cancellations (probably not good for mid-summer - might get too low)- generally a 5 to 7 day trip at CII

If you want to see the Southwest canyon country similar to the Green River trip, you could do the Gunnison to Colorado - Put in on the Gunnison R at Delta, CO and take out at Westwater UT - about 50 miles on the Gunnison, and maybe 35 to 40 on the Colorado- one portage around a dam on the Gunnison, and one or two spots of CII - the Colorado from Loma to Westwater (one spot of CII at Black Rocks) is also permitted now, but a mid-week permit isn't too hard to get - just do a general google search for BLM/ Ruby Horsethief - that could be a 4 or 5 day trip - shuttle servie available

The White RIver from Rangeley CO to Just short of the Ute Reservation lands in UT is an interesting trip - lots of sweepers to avoid, and one CII that can mostly be skirted - generally a 3 day trip

For a different "flavor" of the Green R, you can put in below Flaming Gorge Res and do a 3 day trip with one CIII to portage (world class trout fishery)- shuttle service available
