Historically speaking, bugs are not much of a problem after Aug 1st. We did Yampa/Green the last week of June and Big Island was the only place they were really bad. Even then, Deep Woods Off! seemed to work well. It's only about 30% DEET and doesn't stink too bad. I don't like using that 100% DEET stuff unless it is absolutely necessary.

Just off yesterday. On a 1 - 10 bug scale, with 10 being Deso Sand Wash in early June:

Lodore put-in was a solid 7. Pretty miserable from dusk on. Earlier wind was a lifesaver.

Wade & Curtis was a 3.

Everything else not too bad.
