Good day

Now when 2017 salmon season is coming to and end here in Iceland, we have started to focus on next season. Fishing start at few salmon rivers in beginning of June each year, but most of them open late in June. This season was little bit above average here in Iceland, in general. The top river was West Ranga with close to 8.000 salmon caught. 2nd was River Midfjardara and 3rd was East Ranga.

We have few places available at West and East Ranga for next season, as well as few other great salmon rivers. If you want more info, visit our website or send us an email.

Here is a picture of anglers, Steve Lucas and Sandy Keilloh, with 2 big salmon from West Ranga, caught in the beginning of July this year. Both salmon was released.
