In a cold weather and difficult conditions, few well-known salmon rivers were opened last week in the northeast part of Iceland. Six salmon were caught in river Selá and four in river Hofsá. In river Selá, all the salmon were two sea winter fish and were caught e.g. in Fosshyl and Efri Sundlaugarhyl. One of the salmon that were caught in river Hofsá was a grilse and came ashore in Hvammshylur.
In the river Hafralónsá, six salmon were caught on the first day. As often before, the fishing spots Gústi and Stapi were good that first day.
