When to fish

Atlantic Salmon

Given Iceland's northerly location the salmon fishing season is a relatively short one.

The earliest rivers open on 1st June and the latest close in mid-October, it is also Icelandic law that no river can be open for salmon fishing for more than 3½ months. Hence the earliest opening Atlantic salmon rivers are closed by mid-September.

To get the best out of your visit it is imperative that where there are guides provided, their advice is taken as this will help all levels of anglers.

The guides know their waters intimately, the pools holding fish any given time or water height and which flies to use to eke out that salmon of a lifetime - priceless information.

Sea Trout in Iceland

Those, who have never landed a sea trout, should seriously consider this possibility for fishing in the late summer and early autumn. The sea trout season starts in April with September and October as the prime time.
