We won't lie to you... there are flies! Eeyou Istchee Baie-James is known for its magnificent forests, thousands of lakes, and rivers teeming with life. Like everywhere else, the peak season is in late spring and early summer. By the end of July, the peak has already subsided. That said, despite the flies, it is still fun to do outdoor activities in the summer. A good mosquito repellent and appropriate clothing (long and light-colored, for example) are also ways to thwart the bugs!
