    Thumbs up Lake's for bears

    OK so Bear Lake or Trinity Lake for Brown bears. I need to find a good lake for a float plane in May for brown bears, with little alders and does any one know a cheap air taxi that I could use this May?

    Default Depends on when in May

    Some years there is still ice on some of the better lakes for Brownies to use floats. That is why wheel ski equiped aircraft work best for Spring Brownies.

    I second that thought. There are places to save some pennies, but the air taxi isn't one of them. Find an experienced and competent air taxi and expect to pay a reasonable sum for their services--save being cheap for the food, drinks, etc.
