we did corn creek to heller took off a week ago. Thinks I saw 1 yellow jacket. Some random biting flies at a couple of camps but all in all, biting bugs were non issue. The Trump flags on all of the jet boats were the most irritating pests by far. Make sure your boat is tied off well enough to take the jet boats 2' wave sets all day long. Smallmouth fishing was excellent the lower we got. Have fun!!!!
Just got back from this stretch yesterday. There weren't many bugs to deal with on the salmon portion, but once we got to the snake there were a lot more yellow jackets and flies/gnats. Nothing was really biting though. It was hotter than hell... be sure to bring a nice big shade wing. We had a couple days of 110+ temps. Have a great trip!
Keep an eye out for the rattlers, we saw a few just off the beach in a couple of our camps. Watch your four legged friends if you take them. The wasps are starting to come out that I noticed on some of the beaches and also have fun with the crowds of people trying to get there camp before you. Enjoy
