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.

Here is the first top ten list of the season from the Icelandic rivers. Keep in mind that some rivers have only been opened for a few days. So far the numbers are slightly higher than those of 2014 and the fish is generally in much better condition. I predict a better summer this time around.

Size matters in salmon fishing, it’s as simple as that. We anglers are always on the lookout for that monster lurking in the river – the trophy fish of our dreams. The search for that monster took me to Russia, the Kola River to be exact, a river known for huge fish.

River Blanda has been on fire the past days, yesterday 21 salmon were caught on beat one and the day before that 19 salmon.

We just had a cancellation for one rod at the Blanda beat 1 from 9-12th July. This river started out great this summer and is one of the most known rivers in Iceland, specially for its big and powerful salmon. What is probably though the most impressive about the beat 1 on the Blanda is how many salmon are landed there each season, as Blanda it self ends up on the top spots of most salmon caught in Iceland each year it is quite amazing to think that the 4 rods on beat 1 catch about 85% of salmon caught on the whole Blanda and that is almost only during a 2 month period!

Lax-á team Jóhann Davíð and Simon Nilsson are fishing the river and found a few fish. There is clearly new fish coming in as they lost three fish and caught one the last few hours of the shift.

Last week fishing reports from DEE Scotland , 8th June update. There were 42 fish and 81 seatrout reported to the FishDee website for the week ending 6 June. We had a rise in water levels on Tuesday, which augured well yet failed to deliver. Thursday was the best day with 14. The wind was a pain in the proverbial all week and made life difficult for the rods. While it was another poor return for us it was encouraging that More...
