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.

I just heard from Head Ghillie at Lower Crathes Robert Harper and interrupted him in his preparations for opening day on Monday. I could hear that he was looking forward to the start of the season and he is not the only one. 

According to Robert the river looks nice at the moment at Lower Crathes and the Dee and the water levels are good.  However the forecast could be better with snow and wintery conditions offer the weekend.   

But we cannot do anything about the weather and what matters in the end of the day is that a nice spring fish will be waiting our anglers on Monday. Robert & us at Lax-á are staying positive.

Fishing is all about the feeling, meeting new people, sharing experiences and the passion for the wildlife. At least for me, that’s why I fish. Greenland is my favoutire place on earth and there’s one day that I would like to share with you. This is a story from the season of 2013 in Lax-Á Camp Greenland and a day just before the season started. Enjoy!
