i found myself in Paines earlier this spring, a great place with some real nice lines. Water was too cold for DWS when i was there, the routes are nice tho! I would imagine the water never gets too warm.

Coastal Climber - it was in Feb of '06. Water was a bit on the chilly side - and it's quite swift (you can see the current). Half the fun of climbing this problem is swimming against the current to get back to the start!

Paynes is a GEM of a place. Loved the climbing and the people were great! Made some new friends that I will not be forgetting about any time soon.
