For SALMON fishing Angling Service Strengir offer the following rivers:

Breiðdalsá, East Iceland: Beautiful valley, easy access, and with many multi sea winter fish caught each year and over 40kms of fishing for 6-8 rods there are every type of pool imaginable in Breiðdalsá and is a river that has to be seen to be believed. A great river that is well priced and it´s dramatic scenery is unsurpassed. Breiðdalsa Lodge is by many regarded as the finest full service fishing lodge in Iceland with a fantastic view across the Breiðdalur valley and to high jacket peaks of the surrounding mountains. Is an easy river and ideal for families and individuals alike, expert fishers and those looking to land their first Icelandic salmon. We still have prime week available 23rd - 30th July - but this will not be available for long so enquire ASAP!

Jökla, North East Iceland: Great value, spectacular & remote river system which consist of large Jökla river along with several smaller tributaries and there are certainly more pools to learn than can be achieved in one trip to this stunning new river system. There's a fish ladder built recently so the new Upper Jökla is coming in strong with a huge variety of fishing at prices lower than have been seen before in Icelandic salmon fishing! Dates from 20th July have good openings in both Jökla and Upper Jökla beats.

Combo Breiðdalsa & Jökla rivers: Ideal to combine a week fishing on both these rivers on the openings late July. Perhaps take around 3 days on each and make a changeover between lodges during lunchbreak since there's only 1.5 hours transfer between the rivers. Offers a fantastic variety of fishing at a reasonably price!

Hrútafjarðará, North West Iceland: One of the most sought rivers in Iceland and one slot is available at prime time for 4 days 6th - 10th August on this 3 rod river. Private river & lodge, ideal for small groups wanting to have river and lodge to themselves. Good size salmon, plus some sea-run Arctic char as well. The booking is often taken on self-catering basis with a guide only on the first day to get anglers started, but a full service option is also possible.

For TROUT fishing Angling Service Strengir offer the following rivers:
Minnivallalækur, South Iceland: The famous Minnivallalækur (“Minni”) river is full of trout in the 3-10 lb+ range with some fish even up to 15-20 lb! Nearly every year the biggest trout taken in any Icelandic river is caught in this gem and demand is high for the 4 rods allowed. Perfect for upstream dry and nymph fishing. Cosy lodge overlooks the Home-Pool and is normally self-catering, but a full service can be arranged. There are a few openings still to be found, such as the first days in July along with 2-3 days in late July as well, plus days after mid August. Ideal to combine with trout fishing in Breiðdalsá river and discover then the best of the country when traveling between the rivers seeing glaciers, glacier lagoon, waterfalls etc on the way.

Breiðdalsá, East Iceland: Not many know that this river holds a huge stock of brown trout and on the best days between 50-100 fish can be caught on 4-6 rods, including sea-run arctic char as well. A luxury first class lodge is also included for the trout anglers in the Breiðdalsá lodge along with the salmon fishermen, so no better accommodation is to be found for any trout angler in the country than here. Flexible openings from June to August can still be found. Please enquire.

Jökla, North East Iceland: As with the salmon stock, the number of brown trout, sea-run Arctic char and sea trout has been increasing in this river too. A fine lodge and great value either on self-catering basis or full service for 3-4 rods fishing for trout. Flexible openings in June until August.

Tungulækur, South East Iceland: By far the best sea trout river in the country coupled with an excellent lodge for full service or self-catering. Some say this 3-4 rod river has the best sea trout fishing in the world and up to 100 fish have been caught on the best days! We have access to some periods during prime time late summer and in autumn until 20th October when seasons closes for this spectacular fishing. Please enquire.

But back to fishing! We do have on prime time in late July openings in both Breiddalsa and Jökla river, and ideal to make then combination fishing two rivers in the same week! Both are famous for large salmon and Arctic Char.

Our rivers Breiddalsa and Jökla are truly some of the most picturesque rivers in Iceland as can be seen for example here in Jökla. Our rivers Breiddalsa and Jökla are truly some of the most picturesque rivers in Iceland as can be seen for example here in Jökla.

And our Hrútafjardara river  is highly popular and can be difficult to find space in this charming little 3 rod river. But now are 4 days available in the period 6-10 August but sure not for long so early respond is advisable. Can be sold either as full service or self-catering.

 Opening day on Hrútafjarðará 1. July 2014, the first salmon to be caught that season. Took hitch tupe in one of the first cast in this pool. Opening day on Hrútafjarðará 1. July 2014, the first salmon to be caught that season. Took hitch tupe in one of the first cast in this pool.

Merry Christmas

Season finished and booking started for 2015!

Hello anglers and friends,

The season in Iceland has now officially been compleated as the last rivers recently closed. All in all the season in Iceland will not go down in history as a good season. It was actually one of the worst for quite a while, very similar to the one we had in 2012.

Nice salmon from Breiðdalsá in late August.

Having said that, we are still not to unhappy with our rivers. Breiðdalsá finished with a score of 300 salmon which is about the same as in 2012 however caught over a shorter season on fewer rods than before. So there were more happy anglers at Breidda than in 2012. Actually Agust was pretty good, we were mostly let down by frequent floodwater in July due to heavy snowmelt. Jökla finished also with another 300 salmon which is little less than last season. Jökla is still underfished and still also very much being discovered. New beats far up the valley are showing great potential and the Jökla project is actually getting more thrilling as the sesons go by. Hrúta finished with 300 salmon as well, while somewhat under the rivers recent average, it is still far from being a bad season for only 3 rods allowed there. As in most of the Icelandic rivers, the grilse were scarce, so slightly fewer salmon had a far higher average weight and we had salmon on the Hrúta well in the excess of 20 pounds.

Now we can offer exciting new salmon fishing in Upper Jökla for 2015! Please ask for further details.

Trout and Char fishing on our rivers was top class. Our flagship, the Minnivallalækur, finished with a higher total than the year before which was a good season. Our foreign dry fly fishing clients were getting the best out of Minni and the fish were big as usual, none though bigger than several ten pounders this year.The Breiðdalsá and Jökla also had better trout and char totals this year than last. We would like to point out to our clients that we can set up brilliant trout fishing packages, with either way catered or self catering facilities. We have done quite a bit of this in recent seasons and the popularity is catching on.

It is not only salmon fishing we offer, great sea-run arctic char can be
caught as well in our rivers like this lovely char from Breiðdalsa river.

We have started booking for 2015 and it seems that Iceland is very much still super popular despite a blip in the salmon runs this year so early bookings are advisable. So please dont hesitate to contact and I shall do my best to work out the best possible fishing for you. I would also like to mentione that I will be in London 6-9 November and hope to meet then some of our friends and other anglers if they drop me a line before.

Kindest regards,

Þröstur Elliðason

Good fishing now after tricky start

Hello to all our friends. The news from Iceland is that the start of the salmon season has been tricky, due to regular bouts of extreme weather conditions and snowmelt, resulting in repeated flooding. Most rivers in the northern part of Iceland have had excellent runs of msw salmon while the grilse are running late. Also the grilse are mostly small these days. But the big msw fish are in fine conditions like above fish Markus from Germany is holding in the photo above from Breiðdalsa river.

In the photo above we can see lady with nice salmon from Jökla river in one of the many new pools which have been discovered there.

After slow July the run first days of August has been good in both Breiðdalsa and Jökla and double figures we can now see most days there. Best morning session was on 3. August with 12 fish caught in Breiðdalsa river then.Our lovely 3rod river Hrútafjarðarará has had fine July with nearly 100 fish so far and looks like fair season will be there if the conditions will be good in August.

So, we are now optimistic that the remain of the season will be good and we still have openings if you want to plan a dream trip to Iceland, then feel free to contact us.
