Trout fishing going strong

In Iceland we have had the harshest winter for decades and the winter was followed by a very cold spring with temperatures dropping way below zero in the nighttime the first ten days of May. In the past days it has finally gotten warmer and you can almost hear the grass growing after the rain showers.

We have previously reported that the trout fishing got off to a good start but then it took a slight downturn due to cold water temperatures. But when it finally heats up the trout fishing in the lakes and rivers really exploded.

We are hearing reports from all over the country where fishermen are getting trout in ridiculous amounts every day.

We for example heard from anglers that caught a whopping 80 brown trout’s in two and a half day in our beat in lake Þingvallavatn. Many were over 10 pounds with the larges one being 17 pounds. The average weight was 7 pounds!

We have some availability in our monster trout beat this summer. This is a perfect opportunity to catch that monster trout before or after your salmon trip.

Or just come over for the trout, where else in the world can you catch a trout in those sizes and in those numbers?
