My group will launch the day before you. We always fly into Indian Creek & launch from there. Are you starting at Indian Creek or Boundary? We usually do 1-2 layovers, so maybe we'll see you. We didn't go last year, so I don't have beta on the "killer bee" situation. My group was on the Main Salmon last year at the end of June and reported no problems with yellow jackets or bees. Never had a bug problem on the MF in the fall before. Have a great trip & remember to run your tubes a little softer than normal. It helps a lot!
