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 fishing in Lake Þingvallavatn started really well. On the opening day we were a bit unlucky with the weather conditions with gale force wind and rain pouring down. Casting was not easy so say the least but we still managed to catch 6 trout.

We went and opened our beat in Lake Þingvallavatn yesterday. The weather conditions were pretty awful as you can see from the picture below shot through the car windshield.

But when in Iceland you just dress accordingly and go fishing! I have never in my life caught anything sitting in the car!

There were 29 fish reported to FishDee for the fishing week ending 18 April. Our poor season continues and there is little really I can say about it; the numbers speak for themselves. Suffice to say the Board, owners and everyone connected to the river take this very seriously.
