Brynjudalsá is a small salmon river only 45 minutes away from the capital of Iceland, Reykjavik. It is a great option for daytrips from the capital or couple of days of fishing. We can offer different kinds of accommodation for anglers in the area, from a summer lodge to a fully serviced hotel. The catch statistics are wonderful for this small river as its produces an average of 240 salmon last 5 years with last year finishing in 303 salmon.

Dear friends,

The salmon fishing season is coming to an end, only a few weeks left to catch the big one. After a fantastic season in 2013, we had what we would simply describe as a slow season in 2014 in most rivers, but even a slow summer in Iceland can provide some excellent fishing.

Our very own River Blanda was on fire the whole season and is now fast approaching 2000 caught salmon. The rest of the north and the north east have been reasonable but the west and the south west have been slow.

The pattern looks similar to the years 2012 and 13. In 2012 the fishing was way below average but then in 2013 all rivers were full of fish. It will be really exiting to see what the summer of 2015 will bring, we like all fishermen are always optimistic and predict that all rivers will be full of fish.

We have started booking for 2015 and would gladly welcome you back to fish in Iceland. Let us assist you organize a trip of a lifetime, but hurry up, many rivers are already selling fast.

All the best from Iceland, 

Arni and team Lax-Á
