Iceland Opens for Business

Last weekend two rivers opened for salmon fishing in Iceland: the Nordura in the southwest and the Blanda in the northwest.

In it’s first two days the Nordura yielded between 50 and 60 salmon to it’s 8 rods.

Similarly the Blanda, although fishing just 4 rods, is known to have produced 50 salmon before the close of the opening day on Sunday.

There looks like some great early runs and salmon have been spotted a considerable distance up many rivers already. Most rivers do not open up until between 15th–25th June but sightings of numerous salmon have been reported in many places. First indications suggest that the condition and size of the salmon is also very good.
