Just got back from a week out (ending 8/20).
Bugs are heavier on the west side, lighter on the east side. DEET and headnet worked great for me. They disappeared completely around 8:00, even near lakes and streams.
Washakie, Hailey, Texas, Jackass and the unnamed pass near the junction of Lizard Head and Bear's Ear trails were all clear. A snowfield on the east side of Washakie was manageable without poles or axes.
We brought bear canisters, anticipating camps above treeline. The earlier poster is correct - anywhere with no trees had cliffs. Will definitely save 2+ lbs next time and bring a bear bag.
And there will definitely be a next time.
