today we saw best ever opening day of one salmon river in Iceland. At West Ranga, anglers caught 87 salmon in the first 6 hours of fishing. 10 anglers are fishing the river. It looks like this great river is heading into one of its best season ever. We do have 2 rods available at West Ranga in middle of July and also around middle of September. Please send us an email of you are interested.
Yesterday was the first day of the salmon season here in Iceland and we have probably never in history had a better start. Only few rivers are open, but they seems to be full of salmon. For those interested in fishing in Iceland this summer or next summer, please send us an email and we will send you what options we have for you.
Now when we are comiing close to the fishing season here in Iceland, there are only few prime time options for salmon fishing available this summer. One of those options are River Hvolsa and Stadarholsa, a very good salmon and arctic char river in west Iceland. this fishing area is a combination of 2 rivers that joines in a lagoon, before running together to the sea. those rivers are fished with 3-4 rods and are a good option for a group of 3-6 anglers. Price for this river is also better then in many salmon rivers here in Iceland.
If you are on your way to Iceland this summer on a vacation, we can take you fishing for a day or two. We offer day tours to many rivers and lakes in south West Iceland, within approx 1 hour driving distance from Reykjavik. We offer also fishing and sightseeing tour and for those who do not have many days to spare here in Iceland, this is the perfect day tour. We stop at 2-3 rivers/lakes over the approx 10 hour tour, and we also take the time to see Geysers, Waterfalls and thingvellir National Par. Here you can read more about those tours.
Last year we had one of the best salmon seasons in recent years here in Iceland. Few rivers had their best year ever and few others were close to their best. Although many salmon rivers here in Iceland are Fly only, some rivers allow spin and bait fishing also, sometimes only for part of the season. If you are looking for a salmon river where you can fish with bait or spinner, we can help you out. We have availability at some great rivers. Just send us an email or fill out the contact form and we will send you back some great options. Here below, you can see some pics from the rivers.
