Now the first trip of the season is over with 6 days spent opening up the sea trout fishing season in Iceland on Rivers Tungufljot and Tungulaekur. We arrived late to the river on April 1. due to the arrival time of my guests. That did not make a big difference as when we arrived it was -8°C and the river frozen almost from bank to bank.
Late on April 2. we managed to get some fishing in and found a few sea trout. Over the next 2 days the river slowly opened up and we ended up with 15 sea trout on Tungufljot. On April 4. we moved to River Tungulaekur and opened our account there with 26 sea trout in 6 hours fishing for three rods.
For the next 2 days the bonanza continued with 108 more sea trout landed in 2 days, some on floating lines and hitched flies on the surface. Biggest sea trout for the trip was a 90 cm whopper as well as an 83 cm (pictured) colored cockfish. The last morning we decided to skip the fishing due to a storm coming and headed early back to Reykjavik doing some sightseeing on the way.
A total of 147 sea trout landed in 5 days fishing for 3 rods is great fishing and a positive sign for the coming sea trout fishing. We still have rods available for sea trout in September. For further information please contact me through contact details below.
