I just got back from the Queen Charlottes, the weather was brutal most of the time and we got blown off the water one day by "40-50" knot winds. The standard (cut plug) fishing was slow although I did bring home some fresh salmon the conditions for the fly just weren't great.

I also witnessed more bait than I have in past trips. Thick bait balls of very small candle fish, I had nothing small enough to throw at them and couldn't get them to take anything. I however did hook and land a puffin with a clean release

I buddy managed a 5lb halibut on the fly.

Hush hush, I heard Vashon is hot right now.
