Wondering about how a late spring has affected Bridger Wild., WY

Made a post here earlier and got some great guidance from SwimsWith Trout, amongst others.

We will be shuttling from Pinedale and hiking 52mi. to a car at the Elkhart ranger station. Paper topos, quads, and gps set.

Any hazards/conditions/restrictions to be aware of below 11k in this region of Winds?

What are the trout hitting?

Creek crossing conditions of:
-Glimpse Lake tr.
-Pine Creek tr.
-No Name Lakes area
-Highline  tr. E, SE of Glover pk.
-Titcomb basin
-Pole creek tr. to Elkhart

-Flowers?
-Hot Springs?

THANKS! :D

Hey thanks fishfodinn.
So the skeets are rough already, dang. Good to hear the creeks aren't raging too bad on East side.

trip report: July 4-13
:D
This is the most beautiful place I have been I believe. We only had two stormy afternoons in 8 days, 5 clear nights!
There is only about 20%-30% snow left in upper basins, most of which was in Titcomb's northern end and some around the astounding Jean lakes. All lakes melted out for a few weeks it seemed. Wild flowers were in full swing. Glover Peak was 90% clear on a puffy cloud day. Island lake under the stars, Elbow's lunar feeling...
The trout were unreal. 25 on a Tenkara rod, including 10 Goldens. Upper Jean Lake's feeder creeks after a hail storm: releasing my first Golden behind golden evening peaks is an etched memory for sure. Wish we had 5 more days just to fish alone.
The mosquitoes were pesky for a few hours a day,*viscous*. Head nets in order at camp.

Thank you guys for your advice and help planning, especially Swimswithtrout for his advice, help in route planning and a map! This trip changed me. I will be back I hope.
