My idea of warmth on Deso or the San Juan in April this year will be good warm gear... Planning for an early spring trip with lots of base layers. Yet, once again, I'd rather feel a little chilled than be eaten up by bugs. Everyone who has replied, thanks for the confirmation of that nature, and have a great holiday season. Think snow!

Third week of May is the start of the bug season in Deso. The first 25 miles is the worst.
