The fishing season in the Tungufljót river started on April 1st. The first few days of the season were tough with cold conditions and ice on parts of the river. But with warming temperatures, the fishing kicked into high gear. The group that fished the river between 9-11 of April caught over 50 browns on 2 rods with averages sizes of 60cm(24inches) and the biggest being 88cm(34inches).

Then on April 16th, a 100,5cm(40inches) brown was caught! The last few days have been slow as the river has blown out due to snowmelt but should be back to normal shortly.


The sea-run brown season in the Tungufljót river is April-May and August-October. The summer season, June-August the sea-run browns will head out to the sea but luckily the river has a healthy population of resident Brown Trout and Arctic Char as well as a small run of Atlantic Salmon meaning Tungufljót has one of the longest fishing seasons in Iceland(April 1st-October 20th) 


We still have limited availability for the late season in Tungufljót, info@fishpartner.com for inquries
