Fishing in Iceland includes Game fishing, coarse fishing, sea fishing and fly fishing.  You can fish ‘game’ fish species like Salmon, Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Rainbow Trout in rivers, streams and lakes in Game fishing.

Selecting the best season to catch different fish is very important before you gear up your fishing sport. But most of the fishing in Iceland starts from the mid of April and lasts till the end of September. Different fish have different seasons. To catch fish, there are three main approaches irrespective of the type of fishing you select. First way is to use lures. Lure replicate a source of food like an insect and hence used in fly fishing. Second way is to use natural baits. Most anglers use this as more fish will be attracted towards natural baits that include live worms, maggots, juvenile fish and prawns. Third approach is to use artificial baits like bread, boiled paste made up of mixing bird food, fish meal and milk proteins. This approach is mainly used during coarse fishing.

Unsterile fishing equipment is forbidden in Iceland and hence you have to buy fishing equipment in Iceland else you have to get your own fishing equipment disinfection approved due to bio security issues. By using high quality equipment and reducing the use of consumable supplies, you can decrease the material waste and save energy. Einarsson reels are the most preferred flying reels used for fly fishing in Iceland. Einarsson fly fishing has proved to provide the best quality fishing equipment.

Extreme fishing of rivers and lakes resulted in declining numbers of fish stocks in many good fishing spots. Most of the anglers help the environment by practicing catch and release activity. They catch the fish but release it back in order to protect valuable game fish stocks. Using this catch and release method, conservation of fisheries has proven to be successful. Protecting the fishing grounds is of utmost responsibility of every fisherman. It is known that fishing has the highest participation rate of any sporting activity in the world.
