I was part of the hatch last weekend. First time I have been up there in many years, back when I fished it in relative peace.
I'd say Saturday there were 500+ of us kayaking. In fact, it was too many to even enjoy kayaking....people drinking, singing, yelling, peeing, cussing....you name it. Tried to fish from my kayak, but that was a challenge. The outfitter said come on a weekday if you want to fish - way, way better.
I apologize for joining the yellow army, but it was planned by the ladies
