Season report from Iceland!


The season is underway in Iceland. The trout fishing has been outstanding but unusually low water conditions have blighted the salmon season on many rivers. They, for instance, affect our Hrútafjarðará which has been very low so far. The conditions are due to lack of snow fields following a mild winter, and the fact that what snow there was, melted in April, followed by two months of no rain! It has finally rained on and off, but the rivers need it to be more consistent to make a difference.

Our Jökla has not been affected as it is a large volume river. It was opened at the end of June and has been delivering, such as eight salmon landed yesterday! Mws's are running like this nice fish above taken in Klapparhylur pool in lower Jökla. Breiðdalsá has also produced her first salmon, however it has been very lightly fished so far. Below is the first fish caught on opening day early July.

Sea char have been abundant in our rivers, with several hundred already hooked and landed, while Minnivallalækur has been better than in recent years due to more favorable conditions.

We still have last minute openings should you wish to come up here this season. For example Jökla river 14-20 July and again 23-26 July! All in all, things are looking good. Especially if the gods of rain decide to open up.

Look forward to tell you all about our last minute options and contact This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or call +354 660 6890 for information.

Strengir will be at the EWF flyfishing show in Munchen next weekend 6-7th April.


Again we have a stand near the entrance of Stadtsaal on the first floor. Still possible to get some some last minute offer for fishing this coming season in Iceland, like the in high demand Hrútafjarðará river where a 3 day opening has just come up in mid August, plus also in Minni, Jökla and Breiðdalsa rivers in July and few openings in August as well.

We look forward to meet friends and anglers again at this great Fly Fishing show!
