We at RiverNorth.is are excited to introduce a beautiful and secluded location on the Laxa in Laxardalur, North Iceland. This time we will be on an all exclusive trip in the good company of our friend and master caster Christopher Rownes.
Laxa Laxardalur is located in the north part of Iceland 90 km from Akureyri.
This section of Laxa offers fantastic big wild trout fishing – a big river with long wide flats, large curves and long riffles. It’s a fantastic fly fishing river with an easy access to all areas.
Average sized trout is 5-7 pounds. Wild trout up to 10 pounds have been caught and landed in this part of Laxa. Many renowned fly fishers consider this to be one of the greatest wild brown trout rivers in the world.
Daily fishing is from 08:00 – 14.00 and 16:00 – 22:00. Two rods share each beat. The beats are very long with plenty of space for the two rods fishing the six hour shift. With the road going all along both river banks, access to the pools is quite easy.
The lodge, Raudholar, is an old lodge and basic but well functional. We find it very cozy with a sense of the history of past fishing adventures. It’s a full service lodge with single rooms but shared facilities.
At the lodge we will have breakfast, lunch and dinner, served buffet style.
The surroundings at Laxa river are absolutely beautiful and the fishing can be phenomenal and for sure makes up for any lack of luxury at the lodge.
