Salmon fishing in 2017

Dear angler,

As we draw a close on the 2016 season we have already opened for bookings for 2017.

The good year of 2016 was a strange one indeed. It started with an absolute bang with a big B. Many rivers were full of MWS and we had record openings in our rivers, Blanda, Stóra Laxá, Svartá, Langadalsá, West and East Ranga

This good start was due to two things; a very good spring with optimal temperatures and a really healthy return of MWS. River Blanda was full of big salmon in June and i was lucky enough to get in on the action, on the  picture attached  i am holding a fresh silver from the river. The large salmon kept angler occupied well in to July but then it slowed down a little. The grilse runs were disappointing and therefore the fishing slowed somewhat. Still we are looking at a much better year than 2014 and overall the fishing in 2016 is considered to be close to average numbers.

We are really optimistic for 2017; a good warm spring in 2016 hopefully means that the smolt had a very good chance to survive, resulting in good runs in 2017.

We have already stated booking for 2017 and the best days go fast. We can offer prime time in Iceland’s top rivers such as the East and West Ranga and Blanda.

Don’t wait to secure your place in Iceland 2017.
