In our new brochure for the Fishing Card 2019, we noticed a bad typo. There it says that Meðalfellsvatn lakes open for fishinermen at the 1st of April, but correctly it should be on the 19th of April but then the fishing in Meðalfellsvatn starts.

Thank you for your understanding and we are sorry for all inconvinience regarding this typo.

 

Best regards,

Here in Iceland the fishing season starts formally 1st of April, so there are only few days until the season starts.

There is still a small ice on most of the lakes but the winter is fading away so we are rather optimistic for the upcoming season. The lakes close to Reykjavik, like Vifilsstadavatn is almost ready.

There are few lakes that are open all year like Gíslholtsvatn and Urriðavatn by Egilsstaðir. Baularvallavatn, Hraunsfjadarvatn and Saudlauksdalsvatn are open for fishing when the ice has melted.

For Icelanders, it is quite common that fishermen visit lake Vifilsstadavatn on the 1st of April, to see other fishermen and check the gear, since it is at the big Reykjavik area with easy access. Many fishermen wait until 20th of April when the brown trout fishing season starts in lake Thingvellir.

You can find the list of the lakes with opening dates by clicking here.

Hope you are looking forward for the upcoming fishing season like us!


From 1st of April 2015. Let´s hope there will not be snowing at lake Vifilsstadavatn.

 

Best regards,
