Just wondering if anyone could let me know how black fly season is moving along? Arriving at Kipawa Saturday May 31 for 1 week.
Thanks in advance for the info.

Thanks for the replies....I guess if you drink enough bugs are not an issue until the next day.

Drinking just makes you an easier target! Get a bug suit that is about the only thing that really works.

get a head net and a lantern thermacell (with plenty of replacement cartridges and battries)... also a your favorite bug spray. put the thermacell under the bench or seat in your boat and you won't have an issue.

Wear a belt style thermacell when not fishing... you get the idea.

get a big bite relief stick as well... its inevitable no matter how much you try, you'll get a few...

I put a mosquito net over my rack as well.
