Iceland‘s first two rivers have officially opened up and the first groups have finished their two days of fishing. The start was outstanding, despite appaling conditions. Both rivers, Norðurá and Blanda, were having strong runs....
The salmon season is not officially open, yet the first salmon from an Icelandic river in 2012 was hooked and landed last Friday morning, on May the 18th.
Icelands most famous lake, Thingvallavatn, has been producing some out of this world brown trout this spring, some of the browns being awesome massive beasts ranging to 20 pounds.
The early spring sea trout fishing in Iceland is just about ending. It was a good season despite some cold weather and dismal conditions at times. Many of the fish were huge.
The world renouned brown trout river Minnivallalækur has been on and off as usual in April. But recently it definatly was turned „on“ and some monster trout were landed!
Recently we learned that the sea trout and brown trout fishing in Litlaá had been quite phenominal during this April, here are a few pix from one of our readers and they are worth a thousand words!
As we come to the end of the first month of the season, we may stop and reflect and come to the conclusion that this has been a very satisfactory start to the party. Some rivers better than others though.
The Jökla project in the northeast is blossoming this season. Having gained credibility it is now fished by more people, resulting in its showing better its worth. Already a record catch has been established.
Breiddalsa is rumbling towards a new record catch bettering its „old“ record the dates „way back“ to last year! The going has been great on Breidda all season long and it seems only an accident can stop a new record statistic for the river beinig acheived.
The salmon season is getting short on remaining weeks and overall we are looking at a good average season. Which means few record catches bein reported, yet most rivers alive with fish. In some places the average weight has been outstanding.
