Part of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Upper Green River "Blue Water Trail". A paddler new to floating this section of Green River could easily float past Russell Ford. The main channel flows on the right side of the river while the take-out is in the middle of a shoal, known as Russell Island, on the left. The Green River makes a hard northward loop about three-quarters of the way through this float and then makes a stern right around Marcum Island. After a straight stretch, the next shoal is Russell Ford..
