Default skeeters

How's the skeeters up in North Park? I was up there last year this time and they ate me alive, but not as much runoff so maybe better?

The old saying up there is, if you ain't growing skeeters you ain't growing hay! Rain and irrgation are two of the big causes of them, gets better in Aug.

I think I'll wait til August. I love fishing up there, but the aggravation just isn't worth it.

was up there week and a half ago...not too bad yet. But by end of this month you'll need to take a couple units of blood along just in case.

I was up there a couple weeks ago and and when it wasnt windy they were definitely out and about. Take some spray.
