This winter has been unusually warm and hardly any ice on many lakes.
At this time of year, thick ice is normally on most lakes so it has been easy to spend a day on the thick ice and fish through it. This year is hardly any ice on many lakes.
It is only about two months until first lakes will be formally open for fishing so we will have to see a lot of changes in the weather if the lakes will not be ready.
Below is a picture taken only few days ago at the lake Ellidavatn, that is close to the capital, Reykjavik.
Charming winter by Icelandic lake... but hardly no ice.
