Main Salmon Bugs and Bee's?

How are the bugs and bee's on the Main Salmon? Anyone have a current report?
We put on next week, I am trying to decide if I should bring a screen tent. We will have 5 kids under 10 years of age...


THANKS!

I've also got a launch next week and am curious for an update on bugs and any other recent trip news. Can't wait to get on the river!

Came off the main this past Sunday. The yellow jackets are a constant presence at most camps, but aren't particularly aggressive or in huge numbers. We had one or two bites, but nothing terrible.

Off last Friday. Yellow jackets in camp but only one bite. Green-headed flys were a pia. No ticks or skeeters to be found.

Just got off Saturday. I thought they were bad & so did the kids. I would bring the screen tent. Also a Kitchen tarp, commercials
recommended yellow jacket traps at camp.
