Conditions at the gorge???
Hi all, I know itís been a while since Iíve posted. I need a little info from those in the know. I am planning a quick trip to flaming gorge in Ju e either 9-11 or 23-25. What are the conditions like right now? Just wondering if they are still snowed in or not. We will be taking the camp trailer up to do some camping.

Thanks!

Kevin

Kevin,


I'm a little puzzled by your post. You said you aren't going until mid to late June but want to know conditions now. The conditions now would have no relationship to what they will be in June. In June it will very warm to hot and the water level will be much higher that it is right now due to the snow pack this year. Just trying to understand what it is that you really want to know.



You can more information on current conditions (as of May 3) at this link: Flaming Gorge Conditions

Snowed in? Ya, we have a long, windy, cold, windy, long winter around here, but the ice has been off over a month, and there isn't a trace of snow anywhere. We had a dusting early last week, but it goes away quick this time of year. Come in late June, and bring your shade shelter. The winds of early June "should" be gone for the most part. The first two weeks of June can have days and days of steady high winds though.

Gotcha! By the time you go, you will be hard pressed to see snow pack anywhere. Even Mirror Lake Hwy (SR 150) over/past Bald Mtn will be clear by then. Good luck and tight lines to you.

Thanks! Now I just need to decide on a campground. Somewhere close to the water would be nice.

I was there last week and on Thursday it was a blizzard for most of the day and VERY cold. Friday, you never would have known that you were at the same lake. Sunny, Warm, beautiful and plenty of fish
