Hi Leland,I don't know much about that area but it should be fanatastic Coho fishing this time of year.I've read a lot about your popping fishing for cutties.I have not tried it yet.Here in Victoria it is hard to find the appropriate materials and hooks for poppers and I have mail ordered for some materials like the round cylinder foam and ordered stuff too big as it is hard to know which size when you can't see the material or the size recommended.Is there a website for patterns of PNW poppers?This past winter was a very bad season up here in Sooke Harbour for sea-runs.I have many theories,the two most probable are two resident seals in the harbour and fishing pressure.I've seen the seals come right in after the cutties 20 feet in front of me chasing the fish.The seal population is getting out of control on V.I..I was up on the mid-island for Pinks and seals were taking the fish off the anglers flylines.Good luck up in the Q.C.I.
