Autumn fever in Stora Laxa!

Stora Laxa is a strange river compared to the most in Iceland. Now as we near the end of the season the norm in most rivers is that the fishing declines but in Stora Laxa the opposite is true. Now when the autumn rain hits us and the river rises the salmon that have waited in the larger glacial river …

West Ranga in 2020

As this season slowly comes to an end we have already started thinking of next year. The West Ranga has been one of the most popular rivers in Iceland in the past years and now we have opened the bookings for 2020. We can offer slots in July 13-16th and then again in the period of July 20 – August …

Tungufljot on fire!

The river Tungufljot has been producing very good catch in the last week. Karl from Lax-A was there this morning with his friends and they caught 4 salmon in only one hour. Three salmon were bright grilse but the one pictured was a 90 cm female. They said there was salmon jumping all over the Faxi area and they regretted …

Good runs in Blanda 4

We just got news from angler fishing beat 4 in Blanda. The angler informed us that fish are running and he and his party landed 10 salmon and lost many. Two of the salmon were big ones up to 91 cm but the rest was bright grilse. Extremely positive to hear of a big autumn run in the upper beats …

A slight improvement!

As you may have heard we have suffered this summer with quite unusual drought in many parts of Iceland.  As a result many rivers have suffered with very low water levels and the fishing has been hard. Finally last week we had a little rain in Western Iceland and the catch improved as a result, the Nordura is now up …
