River Blanda finished the season in a respectable third spot with 1931 salmon caught. That is slightly less than the 2611 salmons that were caught in 2013. Never the less we are very pleased with the results in a year which was very slow overall in the country.

West Ranga is the first and will be the only salmon river in Iceland where over 3.000 salmon are caught this year but the fishing has been going strong the last days. 

Salmon number 3.000 was caught at pool Tjarnarbreida. This fishing pool has been very good this October and around half of the salmon caught this month was caught there. We are still seeing fresh salmon coming in so it is safe to say there is still a lot of fun in the East. There is still quite a lot of salmon that is getting away but now there is only a week left of the fishing this year so this number will increase and hopefully we will see around 100-150 salmon more.

Since all but two of Iceland’s most productive salmon rivers have closed for the season there is not much left to monitor other than the weekly catch in East and West Ranga.

The season started quite slow in Iceland but one of our most productive rivers West Ranga is still fishing this September. There have now been caught 2.905 salmon at West Ranga which puts the river to the top of the list of rivers of most salmon caught in Iceland each year. We hope to see the river go to 3000 salmon before the season ends and it will be great watching as the last anglers close the season. One angler caught 94cm salmon yesterday at West Ranga on a small red francis.

This is the top ten list for week 40. West Ranga remains in the top spot and will surely stay there throughout. Most of the Icelandic rivers have closed for the season, only East and West Ranga stay open a little bit further in to the autumn.

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.
