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 has been fishing quite well since opening with up to 40 salmon per day. The West river has not been as good and we are waiting for the first big runs. Hopefully now they are starting, the river has a monitor which tallies the fish running and today 50 salmon have run through the monitor gate.

In the next two weeks we expect good news from both the Ranga rivers, elsewhere rain is desperately needed for improved results.
