StoraLaxa_19.jpg

These are two rivers that are less than an hours‘ drive from each other – but as different as day and night.
West Ranga has been the queen of rivers in Iceland when it comes to catch returns for many years now – average catch for the last 3 years is 10.500 salmon. So it’s a safe bet for catching some salmon. 
Stora Laxa has been on the rise for the past years, with catch returns rising from year to year. But it’s not a river you go to for catching a lot of salmon – it’s a river you visit to try and catch a big salmon in demanding circumstances in unbelievable surroundings.

Most rivers in Iceland have prime time in middle July/August. It can be hard to wait for that prime time when you are all itching to get to fishing after a long winter. Blanda river however is one of the few rivers that have prime time much earlier. The Blanda beat 1 is located in the north of Iceland about 3 hours from the capital. We have almost fully sold Blanda for next season but have 3 days availble 1 rod 21-24th June. This date would be perfect to combine with Nordura river located in the same direction but nearer Reykjavik. The Nordura is also a early season river which makes this a great combination.

Middalsa_3.jpg

Middalsa is located on the eastern part of the Westfjords. The river holds 2 rods and is surprisingly big and holds water quite well – even in the driest of summers. Middalsa yields both sea run char and some salmon.

This has been a tough year in Iceland this season in most of the rivers but from yesterday over 700 salmon have been caught at Stora Laxa which is very good comparing to the lack of salmon this season in Iceland. Yesterday 630 salmon had been caught on beat 1&2. Many salmon have been caught now in September and about a week ago we had anglers who caught 23 salmon in 1.5 days, the smallest of them was 70cm and there of 2 were 96cm, it is safe to say they were very happy!

What’s Greenland like? I’ve been asked that questions many times and I still haven’t got a good answer for it. Greenland is so much bigger, more beautiful and spectacular than words can describe. You have to be here and experience it. I’ve had so many amazing moments in Greenland and there’s nothing like it.

This one rod beat in Sogið, only 45 minute drive from Reykjavik, is perfect for those who don’t want to travel far from the capital for a couple of days of salmon fishing. The beat has the most salmon caught on the river per rod with around 100 to 150 salmon caught each year. It has a fantastic house that comes with the rod and plenty of activities in the area for all of the family.

The house has three bedrooms that room in all 6 people plus a loft with madrassas. This beat is very popular and gets sold up very quickly usually as it is a nice 1 rod beat with great price for the big house and perfect for a group of friends and family to relax.

We had a great report from Pierre Affre fishing Stora Laxa this year, here is what he had to say about a week starting slow and getting so much better in a matter of days:

When we arrived at the lodge of Beat 1 & 2 on the 24 th of august, on the Stora Laxa,  I rushed for the log book only to see that only one grilse has been caught during the previous week. Last year, same time of year, there were some 80 salmons in the book, caught by four rods…No rain for 4 weeks and apparently poor runs in 2014 in most of icelandic rivers, were certainly  responsible for this lack of water and of fish…We had only 3 days on Stora Laxa with Peter, but then I was following for a whole week (27/8-2/9) with a group of 3 clients. From top of beat 2 to bottom of beat 1 (Kongbakki and the pool below), in the next two days , we didn’t see a fish or even rise one to our flies. Then for our last evening with Peter, Arni came to prepare an icelandic lamb BBQ, that he is a real expert…He told me not to worry too much about the week to come, as some little rain was forecasted in the next days , and that because most of the run in Stora Laxa is a late summer one, some fish should finally arrive in our beats.

Sog-Asgardur_1.jpg

The Stora Laxa river is one of the most beautiful rivers in Iceland, for myself I will never get enough of it, there are new fishing places around every corner more beautiful then the other. The Asgardur is situated nearby which makes it great as a combination but that is a very different river so it is good to experience both. It would be perfect to spend f.ex. 3 days at Stora Laxa and 2 days at Sog Asgardur and Sydri Bru.
