No idea about the north country but they are epically bad in western, NY - I'd assume similar to Ohio.

The amount of rain we've had in July has really made for some aggressive hatches as of late.

I'm not sure if the Adirondacks are in a higher-than-average year for precipitation. It might be more variable in the drier parts of the park but from facebook I see the high peaks look extra muddy. Perhaps in those areas the skeeters are worse than usual. I think in the west where there is so much standing water, it's probably not any different. I can recall doing trips in really dry years, where it didn't rain for weeks, and in really wet years where it was raining nearly every day and the bugs weren't much different.
