The Fishing Season of 2020 formally starts tomorrow.  Vifilsstadavatn is a popular lake to start the fishing season. Other popular lakes are i.g. Hraunfjordur that is close to Stykkisholmur and Grundarfjordur.

It will be possible to fish tomorrow, at least part of the lakes that are not covered with ice.
