Default Middle fork flathead upstream

Hi folks,
Just looking for some insight as to what to expect (aside from bears) when I hike up along the middle fork of the Flathead late July. We're planning on hiking down to the river somewhere upstream/s'east of Essex and moseying/fishing up towards Schafer Meadows.
Flies? Cuttie size? Will we need waders or can we wet wade like we did last year ~ the same time when we hiked into the S. Fork via Big Salmon creek? I don't have my maps yet, but this fork/river does not look to be as braided.
Thanks for the info!
