Iceland Having a Great Season Again
We are now past the half way mark of the key month of July and the die is cast for most rivers in terms of how their season is progressing, certainly in terms of numbers of fish. Most are doing very well with fish now pouring into the rivers. It was a very late spring/summer, in fact one could argue it still has yet to come with temperatures in the northern half of the country still hovering at 4 – 6 degrees.
If we had warmer weather the fishing would be phenomenal. The only strange even occurring, which is likely down to the coldness, is that on the rivers in the west, the salmon are piling into the lower beats of river like Grimsa, Kjos, Thvera/Kjarra, Langa, Hitara etc but not going to the top beats which is very unusual. Some think it might be linked to fall-out from the eruption in the winter falling on the snow and now melting and coming down the rivers but this is conjecture at the stage.
Basically, most are having great fishing with lots of fish being caught and personal bests in terms of numbers and size being achieved by many guests.
In between looking after guests we have also been out there looked at some new trout and salmon rivers so look out for those as autumn approaches.
