The Reykjavík Angling Club is Iceland’s biggest and oldest fishing club founded in 1939. We are also a fishing outfitter offering custom made fly fishing trips in Iceland. We offer a variety of trout, sea-trout, char and salmon fishing permits in all price categories for many of the most prominent fishing spots in Iceland. We have both self-catering lodges and lodges where full service is provided.

Iceland is a Mecca for salmon and trout fishermen. Every summer the salmon run in huge numbers to spawn in the country’s numerous rivers. The season is short in our northern climes, but the sport can be fast and furious. There is a wide variety of waters, calling for a range of techniques from the visiting angler and promising a healthy and vigorous catch as reward. The scenery in Iceland is bleak and often haunting, nearly bereft of trees and littered in parts with volcanic lava. Iceland provides a unique setting for the sportsman. Most overseas fishermen return regularly year after year. The salmon season starts from early June and runs until the end of September, and the rivers have different fishing season within this time limit.

The rivers in Iceland are all in private ownership and in most instances a number of farmers own the fishing rights in each river, often leasing it to third party, like our club. This means that there is great control over the number of rods in each river and the fishing environment is very much regulated. The result is that there are no public beats in the rivers in Iceland and anglers have the rivers to themselves.

The Reykjavik Angling Club controls many rivers in Iceland, some of them are exclusively for our members, but we still have a good selection of trout and salmon options for non-members to choose from.
