We will be in EWF Flyfishing show in Germany next week 23-24 October

The season of 2021 is over and it has been interesting. All in all, it was a pretty average season which is not to bad by Icelandic standards.

Our main system, Jökla, finished with 540 salmon which is is not as good as last season alas we had the overflow from the dam earlier than we expected due to the enduring heatwave in the northeast. The river had a good number of fish and next season we will take the mountain beat into the main rotation. Still only max 8 rods fishing the whole river which make huge variety of fishing and pools. Forecast looks therefore good and already high pressure for bookings next year in this river.


We will also be ready with more accommodation space in Jökla lodge for next season so trout fishing for sea-run arctic char, sea-trout and brown trout is also ideal to combine with few days of salmon fishing in this massive river system.

Breiðdalsá continues to be problematic, the heatwave all summer, no water, so few one fishing as a result. But when the heavens opened in September we had lively runs and good catches.

Hrúta! The north of Iceland seemed to be very dull and most of the rivers where in that bracked. Hrúta however, despite the low water levels most of the summer, delivered the same catches as last season. Which is something to charish in a difficult season.

Then, on to our trout river Minnivallalækur: It was a fairly good season, and many where 50 to 68 cm, the old giants however fewer than usual. Dying of old age. But here is a lot of smaller juvenile trout up and coming in the river, so that outlook is good.

Dont hesitate to contact us sooner than later since Iceland seems to be more popular than ever! And we be at EWF show next weekend near Munchen and look forward to meet many of our friends and clients there.
