We are just finishing the Fishing Card for 2019 and it will be ready first week of December so fishermen can add it to their gift list for the holidays.
Lake Þingvallavatn has been great this season and fishermen been fishing very nice chars. Much better season than last two years. Fisherman Jakob Sindri had amazing day there yesterday when he catched a 87cm brown trout among with 55cm char.
Sigurður Karlsson visited Hraunfjordur this morning. The arctic char was quite active and Sigurdur got about 17 nice arctic chars on a dark and red nymph called Krókur.
Simen Prestaasen and Frithjof Hald are Norwegian fishemen that likes to travel and fish. The went to lake Thingvallavatn yestarday in the National Park area. The weather was not kind to them but they managed.
They got one big brown trout each of them and that on the Norwegian independence day that was yesterday 17th of May.
If you are travelling to Iceland in the upcoming summer it is great to pre-organize in time accommidation accordingly. There can be difficult and more expensive to rent a hotel room at last minute deal.
Lake Þingvallavatn is great at this time of year. The great char is coming closer to the banks to breed. Aron Jarl Hillers went there couple of days ago and got a very nice 58 cm char. Marcin was also fishing there on the same day and also got some nice chars. See below some pictures from them from their fishing trips.
Even though June has been quite nice, with rain and good weather between storms, it looks like the lakes are a bit colder than in an average year. Therefore the char is a bit late and finally we are seeing more of the char now at lake Þingvallavatn and Ulftljotsvatn. Upcoming weeks are in a way high season in the lakes since there is more fish around looking for something delicious to eat closer to the waterbank.
The fishing season 2017 starts formally tomorrow. The weather forecast is great and the lakes are in good shape after mild winther.
