The brown trout area in Laxá in Þingeyjarssýsla opened this morning in good conditions and the fishing was excellent. About 150 fish were landed, which is one of the best starts experienced anglers can remember.
The well-known fishing spot “Skurðurinn” in Geirastaðir gave most fish, or about 60. Anglers say that the fish is very fat and healthy. There was also good fishing in Brunnhellishró and Goggavík. Those who were at the beat of Brettingsstaðir stopped early after landing twelve nice brown trout. Pheasant Tail was strong and gave well, as well as other similar bead head nymphs. Some were getting fish on Sunray Shadow.
There have also been reports of good fishing at the beats below the Power Station in Laxá, also a great and well-kept fish.
