Chunky Penstock rainbow

This chunky rainbow engulfed Ray’s mayfly pattern on Penstock Lagoon. This was in early February. Penstock has been rather consistent over the season, and it’s good to see a bit more water in it over the last few weeks.

With very calm conditions on Arthurs Lake the browns are close to the shore on mayfly spinner, but only when there’s cloud cover. Ray is pretty happy with this wild brown trout.
