Ytri-Ranga-HP6H96791Fishing in Iceland in 2018 - East Ranga is one of the best salmon rivers in Iceland. Average catch are close to 4.400 salmon pr season in recent years at East Ranga. Fishing at the river this season, that is now coming to an end, was little bit below average. Nevertheless, we are very optimistic for 2018 season at East Ranga. Smolts that were released this year, and should return as small salmon (4-6 pounds) next year, were few times more that last year. This year we did see good number of small fish return to the river and that also gives a good sign for run of MWS in June and early July. So, our conclusion is that 2018 season looks very promising. If you are thinking about a fishing trip to Iceland in 2018, East Ranga could be a good choice.

Fishing season at East Ranga start on June 15th. For the first 2 weeks, we are normally only catching big salmon, 8-20 pounds. Early in July we start to see the first good runs of smaller salmon enter the river. Prime time salmon fishing at East Ranga is usually from around 15th of July until 20th of August each year. We do have available rods at East Ranga during that time. Contact us for more information
