I did this last year in late July. The fishing was amazing and I heard other fishermen upstream on the box butte did even better. Tons of little holes loaded with trout, my favorite catch in life was the cutter I brought in on a purple hopper with my wife and kids watching. Recommend bug nets depending on time of year, once dusk and dawn hours were there it was pretty bad. My 8 and 11 year olds were troopers though. No bad inclines and a little water to cross made for some good highlights. We camped but spent evening inside retreating from heavy bug presence.
