Fish Talk

Posted on 01.08.2016

After a very good start on the Icelandic Salmon rivers this year, things have slowed down in some of them while other rivers are still fishing strongly. Many rivers fished well from day one due to very early runs and early spring. The water level was already in mid summer level early June.

The West coast rivers had good openings early to mid June, followed by some good fishing throughout June on rivers like Nordura, Thvera, Kjarra and Langa. The fishing got slower in July due to low water levels and less runs of fish than earlier. July has been under average and the August fishing is just starting.

Up North the fishing has been good on the rivers like Midfjardara, Vatnsdalsa, Vididalsa and Laxa, to name a few. The Nes beat on the Laxa has had record fishing, the best start there for decades!

The East coast has been better than last year on rivers like Hafralonsa, Sela and Hofsa, but the runs might be a bit stronger. Some fair fishing on those rivers at the moment and August is a good season there so there´s so let´s wait and see what will happen in the upcoming weeks.


The fishing on the Holkna in Thistilfjordur has been very good this year as well on this nice little two rod river.
