The Icelandic Fishing Card 

The Icelandic Fishing Card, which has gained great popularity among anglers, is now published for the eighteenth time. The price has not changed between years and it is the third year in a row that the price is the same, 8900 ISK. 

The Fishing Card provides access to 37 lakes in Iceland and Lake Hítarvatn is added this year. All information about fishing spots can be found on the website or here on Veidiheimar. 

Most of the lakes open in April and May, but some are open all year round e.g. Lake Hliðarvatn in Hnappadalur and Lake Urriðavatn. Several interesting lakes open on April 1st and it’s worth mentioning Lake Vífilsstaðavatn which is on the outskirts of the capital.

The holder of a fishing card must register by a landowner or show the card to the fishing guard for each lake. Each card holder is allowed to bring one child under the age of 14, free of charge. People are also kindly asked to fill out a fishing report on the web and send it to [email protected].

Good fishing!
