Is this where we find the biggest Brown Trout in the world ?

Lake Thingvallavatn in the National Park of Iceland have Brown Trout of size that it is hard to believe ... every year there are numbers of Brown Trout of sizes as big as 10 - 28 pounds landed , they call them the Ice Age Brownies .. and they are caught from bank and on fly !  These Brownies must be some of the biggest in the world , best time to come is when the ice is just off the lake and the Brownies are hungry and hunting , timing is April , may and early june ... it is very exciting and unforgetable memories seeing huge groups of Brownies of this size passing by when you are fishing ,  splashes like fresh salmon , you hook ten of them and if you are lucky you will land one!  Arni arnibald@lax-a,is

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.
