Top ten list week 28

The salmon fishing in continues to be on the poor side with water still needed in most rivers. On the bright side, rain is foretasted next week and hopefully we will then see the runs that are missing and the salmon already in the rivers will start to take. The East Ranga has the best weekly catch by far with …

Ranga rivers waking up!

So far this season in Iceland has been very much on the slow side. Water is desperately needed in many rivers and the few salmon that have entered the rivers are reluctant to take in the sunshine and warm water. The Ranga rivers always hold water and therefore there is no obstruction for the fish to run. The East Ranga …

First top ten list of the 2019 season

We bring you the very first top ten list of the season. The season has started slowly in many rivers due to drought as we have hardly not had any rain for six weeks in West and South Iceland. On the bright side we have rivers such as the Blanda, Sog and the Ranga Rivers which never suffer from low …

Ranga Rivers – Cancellation rods

Due to cancellations we have a few rods in the Ranga rivers in the period of July 12-20th which we are offering at a good last minute discount. The Ranga rivers are two of Iceland best and the fishing has started really well especially in the East River. Tight Lines Johann David – jds@lax-a.is

Good start in East Ranga!

The East Ranga has been very kind to her anglers, many big ones caught and the largest being 103 cm. Now we are hearing of good grilse runs as well and yesterday 30 salmon were caught from the river which is excellent so early in the season. You can still join the party as we have a few rods left. …

The largest salmon so far!

Now the season has been open for a while in Iceland and we are still fishing mostly only the big guys as the grilse runs are yet to come. We have had a few massive fish in river Blanda, two 98 cm salmon and one in the very rare category of 99.5 cm. The Ranga gave a 103 cm fish …

Opening of West Ranga

The West Ranga opened yesterday with great success. On the opening day nineteen salmon were caught,all big ones except for three grilse. The three grilse were a surprise as they usually come later but hopefully its a good sign for the runs.  The West is in very good water and does not suffer from the drought which many of the …

Blanda – upper beats open tomorrow

Blanda has been so far one of the best rivers in Iceland due to the fact that it never suffers from drought like is the case unfortunately for many other rivers in Iceland. Blanda has still been low in water but that just means perfect conditions for that river but the drawback if you can call it that is that …

Water needed in Iceland!

Now it has been a few days since the season started in rivers Blanda, Nordura and Þverá/Kjarará. River Blanda has started okay as it holds water very well being in part a glacial river. The river is though very low in water so there is not much stopping the salmon from going straight to the upper beats. I personally had …

Blanda opening 2019 – final results

The opening days in Blanda gave in total 22 salmons for the four rods. All healthy two year salmon with the largest being 94 cm. Now there is drought in Iceland with hardly any rain for weeks and many of our rivers are getting low in water. Blanda is never low in water and the conditions there are perfect just …
