Mosquitoes or no see'ums in late September?

We plan on hiking and kayaking 3rd week in September and would we be on the menu? We are looking at a cabin, believe it or not, on Mosquito Bay!

Any other place or bay on Priest lake that has none (or less anyway) flying pesks if they are even present?

Thanks!

really, you are asking if there is some place that has less bugs?? i would be a millionaire if i could predect something like that. sorry, but we have people come and ask, "how far north do you go before the deer turn into elk...?", i can't at this moment think of the questions that we are asked about, living in the woods..

all depends on weather, wind, luck of the draw..what is happening on THAT day...bugs..who knows..

but you will have a good time in our wonderful state..idaho.

We were in Priest River a few years ago in mid to late September and I don't remember the bugs being terrible. My husband fished quite a bit and he doesn't remember them being bad either. Not a bad idea to keep a good supply of repellent handy just in case.
