Are the big salmon runs starting in River Stora Laxa?
Arni has been fishing beat 1&2 in Stora Laxa for the past few days waiting for the big autumn runs to arrive.
Stora Laxa has a special stock of salmon that enter the river late in the season when we get the first big autumn rains. Before that the salmon stay in the main glacial river Hvíta waiting for the opportunity to enter the spawning grounds.
Arni was in pool “Kóngsbakki” yesterday evening and caught 7 salmon in one hour. The salmon had on the special white color of the ones coming from the glacial river so hopefully the runs are starting to pour in.
There is more heavy rain forecast next weekend and then we should by all means see the beat full of fish.
