It have been a excelland spring season for Trout and Seatrout so far here in Iceland. Since the fishing opened on the 1st of April it have been consistently  good reports from the rivers  , both in numbers of fish and sizes , the biggest we have heard of is a 21 pounder from the Stadar river on the west coast, lots of 80 to 90cm have been landed.  Weather have been reasonable mild in Iceland with daily temperatures at 6 - 10 on Celcius.  Arni arnibald@lax-a.is

Scottish angler Ian Bain has been a fixture on the East Ranga for the past 20 years. This year he’s heading for the river right at the start of the season.  Here’s why.

Ten salmon on a bright and sunny morning on the East Ranga was at the extreme end of my range of hope, especially since six of them were two-sea-wintered fish – and it was not the height of the season.

Yesterday the 1st of April , this was the opning day for the trout fishing in Iceland.  The opening day was excellent , both in terms of weather and the fishing , many big trout where landed and the biggest ones up to 85 cm long.  Some rivers had a big day , like the Tungulaekur river on the south coast where over 90 trout was landed yesterday to 4 rods.  Rivers like Litla, Varma , Geirlandsa , Tungufljot , Vatnamot , Minnivalalaekur , did all well yesterday  , Arni  arnibald@lax-a.is
