First fishing day of the season here in Iceland was on April 1st. It is still cold here in Iceland and some snow on the ground, but anglers are out there fishing. Spring is just around the corner. April and May are all about Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Arctic Char. When we come into June, our salmon season starts. Prime time for fishing for most species is in July and August.
The start of the season was really good. Not all rivers are open, but many sea trout rivers and Brown Trout rivers in south Iceland are open. Also few rivers in north part of Iceland. Fishing at the sea trout rivers in south was great and some of them are still packed with fish. Brown Trout fishing was also good and when the spring arrives, in the next 10 days, brown trout fishing will get even better.
All rivers in Iceland are private and we sell limited number of permits for each river, each day. Permits for rivers are issued on daily basis.

Spring usually arrives earlier in south Iceland, approx. 2 weeks before than in north part of our country. Our International Airport is located in south part of the Island and you can easily be at the river, one hour after you leave the Airport.
Many rivers in Iceland are only fished with fly and fly rods, but we do have few that allow spin and bait fishing as well.
