Nobody knows yet because it's permit controlled and the permit application window closed on January 31. Application results should be available next week.

There are non-permitted sections on the Green from just below Flaming Gorge dam to Swinging Bridge (basically at the Colorado stateline); however, really there's only one Class III rapid in those 30 miles. The top section is mostly a pleasant float trip, the middle section has the arguable Class III rapid, and the bottom section is basically a bird wildlife sanctuary traversed, in August, on mostly moving, albeit slowly, water.

You can also run day trips on the 9 mile Split Mountain Canyon section of the Green. It's permitted as well. See https://www.recreation.gov/permits/Dinosaur_National_Monument_Split_Mountain_Permits/r/wildernessAreaDetails.do?page=detail&contractCode=NRSO&parkId=115140

Good luck!
