Anglers agree this summer will be remembered for the amount of large salmon (2SW) caught.
Unfortunately, our grilse runs were not as strong as we would have liked them to be, but it is believed that the grilse stayed in the ocean and will be arriving as 2SW in 2017.
There have probably never been as many new members in the 100 cm club as in this summer. Laxá in Adaldalur (NES) has for example been very successful with 20+ pound salmon caught, and one of the reason that the river already is almost fully booked next summer.
Anglers are supposed to release all salmon longer than 70 cm. Of course many of the big ones are caught again and again, but there also seems to be more of them now than before.
