Few remain openings for salmon fishing in Iceland!

THANKFULLY, AND IN spite of all the problems that Covid-19 has been throwing at us over the last year, it looks like the 2021 season will go ahead and we will be able to share good times on the river bank once more. And what a wonderful prospect that is.

There have been some very important changes made to the tackle disinfection regulations. Despite all of the disappointments and disruptions to travel that the pandemic has caused, one good thing has come out of it for anglers visiting Iceland. That is from now on fishing tackle disinfection will be done at the fishing lodge.


This year’s fishing season in Iceland has been almost fully booked since Christmas time. Obviously there have been a lot of rollover weeks from last year, but even so, many of the remaining rods were taken up enthusiastically by local and foreign anglers who are very keen to get back on river again and fish.

Our availability list for 2021 is pretty limited at the moment but there are some very good combination trips to be had with fishing on the Jokla and Breiddalsa:

29 June to 4 July - Here is a wonderful opportunity to fish both rivers for 2 rods. This is six days fishing for the big fish that we are expecting after the huge run of grilse we had last season in Jökla, which was one of the best in all Icelandic rivers. We are hopeful of good early season fishing for 2SW salmon this year.

7 to 13 July - There is 1 rod available fishing here that should provide good numbers of 2SW salmon mixed with the start of the grilse run.

10 to 16 July - There are 2 rods available here with more mix of grilse along with 2SW salmon.

4 to 13 August - This is another option for 2-3 rods available in three different lodges, Jökla, Upper Jökla and Breiðdalsa rivers at a prime time of the season for those lodges.

Look forward to assist you!
