I did this trail June 27 and camped at Gilbert for 5 days. There was quite a bit of snow the last couple of miles but the lake was open. Fly fishing was great when the wind was calm. Very few bugs this early but allot of mud around the lake. Didn't see a soul the entire trip, just what I needed!

Similar to Kings peak without the crowds. Beautiful lakes sit closer to the peaks than lakes in Henry’s Fork. Weather was perfect. No bugs but a lot of hunters in the lower area. Saw 2 moose in the upper lakes.
