The rivers in Iceland started quite slow this year but the East Ranga has been doing good now the last weeks although it had a slower start then usual. What was however interesting this year was all the big salmon coming in in big numbers at East Ranga very early, far most of the salmon was very big. There were 42 salmon caught at East Ranga yesterday and that made the total for the summer 497 salmon caught. valgerdur@lax-a.is

Fishing has been great in East Ranga. Yesterday (16.07) 37 salmons were caught and the total tally is now at 330 salmons.

Blanda river continues on a good run and there have been close to 800 salmons caught on just beat one which is the best fishing in the country. In the past three days several hundred salmons have gone upstream through the fish counter and as a result the fishing has been picking up on the upper levels, beat 2, 3 and 4.

Manuel Paz was fishing the Blanda beat one last week amongst other anglers and caught this beautiful 9kg (18pound) salmon ! Thank you very much for sharing the photo with us.

The fishing at Blanda beat 1 is doing great and one of the best rivers in the north this season. There have been caught around 700 salmon at beat 1 which is fully booked for the season. We have already started noting down bookings for next season.

 Iceland has had a somewhat slow start to the season but many of our rivers are doing fine.  In Hallá our little lovely self-catering river up north fishing has been good, and there have been 13 salmons caught. We heard from guys that fished the river last weekend. At first the river was nice and they caught two large salmon 80-91 cm. But then an unusual summer storm hit the country and the little river which is usually gin clear turned muddy and was completely flooded as you can see from the picture taken this weekend. At the moment the weather is more like what we are used to in the summer and the rivers are back to normal with beautiful water levels.

Not many news yet of big Salmon runs. The north coast is reasonable good , most rivers at average , some less and some better, Blanda have been on fire. South west and the south coast is way behind and we very much need to hear some positive news on daily good runs in to this rivers , most of them like the Borgarfjordur rivers Nordura , Grimsa , Thvera , Kjarra , Floka , Langa are normally early rivers , late June and July the prime time and we are already well in to July ... next 10 days are extremely important, no lack of water here all rivers have more than plenty.  Arni arnibald@lax-a.is

Dear fishermen!

We have made some minor adjustments to the beats in Stora Laxa, zones 1&2 and 3. Pool Rauðuskriður which used to belong to beat 2 is now a part of beat three. Beat 3 now consist of the beats between: „Undirgangur“ and „Rauðuskriður“ with both beats included . Beat 1 & 2 consists of beats between: „Illaker“(including) and the convergence of Litla Laxá (Little Laxá) on the east bank, and the boundary of the property Iða on the west bank.
