This is a tough year to give suggestions as many of the roads blew out. I wasted 3 hours driving to a productive area in my unit only to find the road was gone.

Pretty much anything in the clear cut areas should have bears soon. Look for grass and movement.

I called the Colville ranger station.  The gentleman who I spoke to said that 18 roads have been identified as 'closed' because they're either washed out or impassible.  He also said these closed roads are identified on a map posted at the Colville station.  Still 2-3' of snow above 4000' as well.
