We put on May 25 at Sand Wash with no mosquitoes mostly due to the morning temps in the very low 40s. Rock House camp had the most but still very minor and they were not aggressive. None below that to speak of.
Just got off deso Thursday. Hit the high water on day 1, a few mosquitoes at sand wash and turtle 3, otherwise not a single drop of deet was needed. Water was coming down though, I imagine the bugs are coming out in force now.
Any update on Deso. bugs? I'm scheduled to launch this Thursday with my 12 and 10-year olds. Planning to get at least to Jack Creek 1st day, but wondered if I'm setting myself up for child abuse if bugs are bad beyond there. Thanks for any intel!
