Dinkey Lakes Wilderness - 6/21 & 6/22. 1 to 3 depending upon location & time of day. Mostly àbout a 1, but pretty annoying in the morning at Rock Lake. Breeze came up each day and put em down in afternoon :) . I will say the area was really dry for this time of year, and I would expect the Skeets will drop off dramatically in short order.

Mosquitos were pretty bad in Sabrina Basin once above Blue Lake this past weekend.

Little Lakes Valley 6/22-24
Treasure and Gem Lakes were a 3 but the wind kept the buggers at bay most of the time. They seemed to be getting worse as the days progressed.

The upper ~2/3 of the trail is about 3-4. They mostly let you walk through, but if you stop, they will immediately try to suck you dry!

The lake itself wasn't a problem at all.

Middle Velma Lk on M-Tu and again Th-F was a 2.
