Bugs on the San Juan next week??

Wondering if anyone has any recent reports or past experiences on the San Juan river with bugs towards the end of July?

We're floating sand island to clay hills, staying at slick horn and grand gulch the last two nights with four children in our group, all under age 6.

I'm usually a bug magnet but after about 50 San Juan trips in all seasons I don't recall any really bad bug experiences. Maybe I am too toxic in that environment.

Had a small herd of horses tear thru the camp once, but not bugs
Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of life on or off the river. is offline   Reply With Quote
