Due to some unforseen circumstances we have a couple of rods left on Midfjardara and Laxa I Kjos. Both are in prime time and are opportunities not to be missed.
Miðfjarðará – 2-5 August 2021, 1 rod – £6,560 per rod
The Miðfjarðará offers more fishing per rod than most salmon rivers in Iceland with over 200 named pools divided between just 10 rods throughout the season. The river system is 115 km and offers fishing on four rivers, the Miðfjarðará, the Austurá, the Vesturá and the small Núpsá. The prime season is best fished with floating lines but one should always carry a sinking line or sink-tip line for the deeper pools or high water conditions. The Miðfjarðará is one of the best salmon rivers in Iceland with an average catch of around 3,300 salmon for the past seven years. Mid-July to late August is prime time, this is when the biggest numbers of fish are running the river. They are mostly grilse with a mix with MSW salmon entering the system and aggressive to take surface flies.
Rods very rarely become available on this fabulous river so this is a rare opportunity.
Laxa I Kjos – 26 – 29 July. 1 rod – Last minute reduced rate £4,900 per rod, Peter’s hosted group
The Laxa I Kjos is an intimate river and the fishing is more akin to trout fishing for salmon, a true hitchers’ dream. Small rock pockets, canyons and open meadows are perfect for single handed fishing with tiny flies. The river also has some huge sea trout which run throughout middle July and August and can be caught on dry fly in the meadows to add to the excitement. Laxa I Kjos also has a small tributary called Bugda that boasts good numbers of brown trout and salmon on light tackle. Laxá I Kjos offers some very exciting sight fishing and hitch fishing opportunities for salmon. The lodge looks out over the middle section of the river and has just undergone and extensive refurbishment making it one of the top lodges in Iceland.
