Brown trout & arctic char

char fishing to be found in the world.
The fresh water fishing season in Iceland starts in
April on several sea trout & brown trout rivers as
well as a few lakes. The main brown trout & arctic
char season starts in May and ends in mid-September.
The prime sea trout season is from late July until
late October. The prices differ somewhat from one
fishery to another, but also throughout the season.
Its possible to book accommodation on self-catering
basis or at lodges offering full board services.
The salmon season starts in June and extends into
mid-September. In a number of late-run rivers,
fishing ends at the close of September, but few
ocean ranching salmon rivers are open until late
The prime and the highest priced time is in general
the period of mid-July until mid-August. That is
actually the period when most of the salmon is due
to be running up the home rivers for spawning. The
prices differ somewhat from one river to another,
but also throughout the season. Usually the lowest
rate at the beginning of the season and then at the
end of the season. Its possible to book
