McGee pass June 18th

Went up to hike and fish big McGee lake, check the pass and look at some other lakes in the McGee drainage.
At big McGee, snow level started pretty solid just below the lake at around 10,500'. BM was completely frozen except for about 5' at some parts of the shore. The ice appeared to be about ap1' plus still. Complete snow past the lake with no significant tracks. Next day backtracked and headed to Stealhead lake to see if we could find fish. Lake was compltly open with very little snow around. Great camping areas and unfortunately all the 6" Brooke's you could want. Snow looked pretty solid about 10800'. Mosquitoes about a 2-3 from 9300' to 9800' and not one above 10000'. TR to come.
