black fly season?

Hi-- Just wondering. When is black fly season in Paradise and on the Upper Peninsula? Is July 14 too early to visit if I want to miss Black Fly season?

That should be a good time to go, though there may still be some black fly activity. Usually by the 4th of July, the flies have mostly disappeared, at least as far as being the nuisance they can be. If you are not camping, I wouldn't worry about them. Even if you are camping, again, by that time, things have improved. Now, mosquitos might be a different story...depending on the much rain the UP has had..so, come prepared with bug spray. But it is a beautiful time to see the UP~
