Fishing season is well on it´s way here in Iceland. First salmon rivers opend last week and finally summer have arrived. Many anglers comes from abroad to Iceland each summer to fish for Brown trout, char and salmon. Last week, 3 anglers from Switzerland came to Iceland to fish for Brown trout and Char. Here below we can see few pics from the 4 days they were fishing. they fished river Varma, River Minnivallalaekur and river Svarta. Angler on the pics is Udo Oppliger.
First two of the bigger salmon rivers here in Iceland opened on the 5th of June. those rivers are River Nordura and River Blanda. First day was very good. At river Nordura anglers hooked 24 salmon and caught and released 10 of them. At River Blanda, anglers caught 4 salmon and hooked few more. this beginning is better than many anglers expected and hopefully is a good indicator for the summer season.
We have still some opening for few of the best salmon rivers here in Iceland - rivers like West Ranga, Nordura, Brennan, Straumar. Langa river, Haukdalsa river and river Kjarra. Send a email to anglers.is for more info.
Now we are all ready 3 weeks into the 2015 angling season here in Iceland. In April anglers are specially aiming for sea trout, brown trout and local char. Rivers like Varma and tungulaekur have been very good. Weather have been rather cold and that have affected the start of some river. 2 days ago, fishing started at lake thingvellir. Anglers have been catching brown trout in sizes from 2-8kg. and we will for sure, see some that is over 10 kg.
