Laxa in Dolum - 40% MSW salmon in 2019
This 4-6 rod river on the west coast produced 750 salmon last season, in a year that was very difficult for most of the Icelandic rivers. There was a lack of grilse runs into the rivers on the west coast, but the good news is that 40% of landed salmon on Dolum was MSW salmon, which spends two or more years at sea. Ever since the catch and release policy took place in 2014 we see more of the larger fish between years.
Long may it continue.
Laxa in Dolum 2020
We have few rods available for the 2020 season on this fantastic river. The prime on Dolum is much later than on other West coast rivers, and usually August is the time to fish. The reason is that the river gets its main runs about 2 weeks later than it´s neighbors. Dolum is one without a doubt one of the best rivers in the country, only fished with 4-6 rods, and constantly amongst the top five rivers when salmon per rod is calculated. It is also known for its large salmon, showing the highest average weight of all the West coast rivers in 2019.
