No bait fishing until 15th of June in the National Park.

Since that the month of May has been the coldest in decades, the Þingvellir National Park Commitee announced today that it has to delay the bait fishing season until 15th of June, instead of 1st of June that was formally announced.
 
So there will only be fly fishing allowed in lake Þingvallavatn until 15th of June and all brown trout must be release back in the lake.
 
We hope that fishermen show this decision understanding for the sake of the brown trout.
 
 
Tight lines,
