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.
