This season the Breiðdalsá will not open untill 8 July for salmon fishing. The first two weeks of the seaon are fully booked, but the last week of July and first week of August have a few rods remaining.
The Jökla was quite a revelation this season. Thanks to the work done on the fish ladder at the head of the big canyon, and the stable water conditions for most of the summer, the new water that opened up to us in the upper river proved to be a very exciting find. This year the new area was only used for about 20 days of experimental fishing, but still produced 60 salmon, including some fine specimens in the 15 to 20 lb range. See more (pdf) >>
FOR THIS EDITION we begin with news from the Jökla, for that is where the action is taking place on our east coast rivers. The catch is similar to last year at this time with over 230 fish landed. The main river is still producing most of the fish and 60% have been caught in pools above the fish pass in the canyon. As mentioned in the previous newsletter, this is the
area of river seeded with par since 2008.
