    Bug report for Dolly Sods?

    I'm thinking about hitting Dolly Sods next weekend with a few friends. Anyone have any idea what kind of buggy conditions (or not) we might expect to encounter?

    Not bad at all- we stayed at 4th Iron on 302 and drove to Conway area. Some mossies but that's it. It is cool- 41 past 3 nights.

    Have not been too bad so far, but the nights have been cool, in the 40's. This coming weekend, the temps should be in the 50's, but they should not be too bad. It has been wet though, so when they do start, they might be bad.

    I was out there June 7th. Blackbird Knob to Big Coalstone to Dunkenbarger to Redcreek to Fisher Spring Run. There were some biting flies in the open areaa. Once away from the open areas and Red Creek, the flies seemed to disappear. Not many and not bad.

    I was out on Fisher Spring Run looking for a lost backpack again on the 21st. I went Fisher Spring Run to Red Creek and no further. There weren't any bugs at all.
