The rain is here!


The fishing season in Iceland started in a different way this year.

May and June were dry months with almost no rain. So therefore our salmon season opened with very little water in our rivers. A situation that has not happened before as long as people can remember.

Finally the rain is here and the water is rising. The rivers are starting to look good and and freshly run salmon is coming in.

Good news for those who are on the way!

First salmon caught in Brynjudalsá this morning

First salmon caught in Laxá in Dölum this week

First salmon caught in Urriðafoss a few weeks ago

There has been a lot of action in Urriðafoss lately.

Tight lines and Happy fishing!

If you still have not planned your fishing this summer, I recommend you check out these super options:

Straumar Junction pool

  • July 21-22 (afternoon - noon)

Laxá in Dölum

  • July 12 - 14 (afternoon - noon)

Lower Rangá

  • July 28 - August 1 (afternoon - noon)
