Maine from June 8-18th; how are the black flies this year?

Jump to last reply

Hi,

We are planning a last minute trip to ME, arriving Portland on Saturday, June 8th and leaving from Bangor on the 18th.

Does anyone have any information on this year's black fly season? Maine Nature News reports and map seem to suggest that there is not much activity right now which might mean misery by the time we are biking in Acadia around the 14th. Can anyone provide some current information?

I need to buy these flights today, if we are going to go for it.

Thanks, CMM
