All good things come to those who wade! Iceland’s pristine waters abounding in fresh fish are sought out by anglers from all over the world. There are over 100 self-sustaining salmon rivers in the country, 20 of which fall into the elite category. An increasing number of rivers in Iceland are open exclusively for fly fishing throughout the salmon season which spans from mid-June until the end of September.
Lakes and rivers provide outstanding trout fishing opportunities for both brown trout and Arctic char. Trout fishing season spans from the end of April until late September. During winter, ice-fishing is quite popular.
Deep sea fishing is possible from virtually every coastal town on the island with success in nearly every trip. For salmon fishing, permits must be reserved well in advance, but trout fishing permits can be obtained at short notice, often the same day.
Iceland’s waters are disease-free so all equipment coming into the country, including waders and boots must be disinfected.
