Every now and again we at the office get the opportunity to go out and do some fishing. That just happened a few weeks ago where the Swedish guy, also known as Simon Nilsson, and me went to Lake Þingvellir to hunt down some brown trout. This fishing is something that both Icelandic and foreign anglers have been giving more attention to in recent years and is a great addition to the spring fishing in Iceland. Especially for the restless angler who finds it to hard to wait for the salmon fishing to start.

Just wanted to remind you all on beat 2 in Blanda which we have split up from beat 1 as we are now offering them separately; 4 rods on beat 1 and 6 rods on beat 2. The second beat, up in the valley, is 25 km long with endless pools and plenty of space.

It will be very exciting to see how beat 2 will proceed alone but by making this change we are pretty sure that we will have a better use of the beat and the catch numbers will improve. valgerdur@lax-a.is

The Stora Laxa river is by far the most beautiful river in Iceland in my opinion. There is nothing like walking in the canyons looking for the salmon and casting in the breathtaking scenery. What I think is also so charming is that the river is situated only about 45 minutes from our capital so it is such a short distance to go to be in such scenery. valgerdur@lax-a.is

Beat 4 is a tributary of the main river Blanda. This is said to be one of the best kept secret rivers in Iceland, many fish around and they are so willing to take small flies and the hitch. I highly reccomend this fishing, the lodge is self catering and the price is fair. The river is small, ideal for single handed rods weight 5 - 7 and all floating line. The beat 4 is crystal clear and offers over 40 pools and pockets to fish from for the 3 rods.

Even though the salmon rivers of Iceland have not officially opened the first salmon of the season has already been caught.

Norwegian anglers were fishing for sea trout in the river mouth of West Ranga, their guide told them to use a Sunray Shadow because it has been very successful for the seatrout.

This one rod beat in Sogið, only 45 minute drive from Reykjavik, is perfect for those who don’t want to travel far from the capital for a couple of days of salmon fishing. The beat has the most salmon caught on the river per rod with around 100 to 150 salmon caught each year. It has a fantastic house that comes with the rod and plenty of activities in the area for all of the family. valgerdur@lax-a.is

West Ranga topped the charts in Iceland for the 2014 season as it has done on numerous occasions before.  Anglers tend to fall in love with the river, not just because the sheer volume of fish they are able to catch but also for its natural beauty and great variety of the pools.

For the summer of 2015 there will be a brand new luxury lodge for the  river. The lodge is situated by one of the best pools on the river with amazing view to enjoy over breakfast, lunch and dinner at the full catering lodge. valgerdur@lax-a.is

Yesterday our first shipment to Greenland was sent. Now we are really getting close to the season and with only 6 weeks until we open the doors to LAX-Á Camp, the final details are getting into place. With reports from our local guide Jens-Enok, the spring is a bit late and with a lot of snow on the mountains. So we will probably have plenty of water in the rivers and lakes for this year Char fishing.  

We are very exited about the busy season and looking forward to meet and share the Greenland adventures with out fellow anglers / hunters.

There were 73 fish and 39 sea trout reported to FishDee for the week ending 23 May. This is a bit of an improvement on previous weeks, although I will keep the Lambrini on ice until we top three figures.

The lower river had another slow week with just 11 below Banchory Bridge. Crathes, Invery/Tilquhillie and Banchory had three apiece with Park and Lower Crathes taking just one each.

Another week and another fishing report from our favorite Scottish river, the River Dee. Our beat, The Lower Crathes and West Durris reported a total of three salmon and one sea trout last week. Below you will find the river report from Ross Macdonald.

"There were 51 fish reported to FishDee for the week to 9 May. No change on last week's total and still well below what we deem to be reasonable. There were reports of a several solid looking sea trout to 4lbs- there were 33 of these wonderful fish in the book. We had a good rise in water levels last week, peaking on Wednesday and another rise was underway this morning, so hopefully this sustained water will make a difference over the coming week.

Sog-Asgardur_12.jpg

If you are looking for an exellant salmon beat near Reykjavik, situated in the perfect enviroment - Sog Asgardur is your place. This is a beautiful river situated only 45 minutes from the capital. The lodge is perfectly situated at the river bank with view from the jacuzzi over the river and mountains nearby. This beat is well known for large salmon and is ideal for fly fishing, a great choice would be floating lines and riffling hitch which works very well. This 5.6km beat is exclusive for 3 salmon rods.
