Hydromantes question

Is it worth looking for these guys in late July, or should I just forget about it? I know it is probably the worst time, but that is when I'll be in CA.

H. shastae and brunus are low-elevation species with winter/early spring activity windows. H. platycephalus occurs at high elevation and can generally be found all summer in specific microhabitat. July is a perfect time although in this year of greatly diminished snow pack, some sites might be too dry by then.
