    My wife and I are headed to Iceland for a few days at the beginning of April and I want to fish a couple of days. Wife will probably allow only one....... Any recommendations? mainly looking for lake, stream and river.
    Thanks

    Not to sure the ice will be out yet!

    (b) The average maximum daily temperature in inhabited parts of Iceland in April is about 5C. Although there is plenty of daylight in April, spring doesn't really start till May. So you'd better not mind it cold, bitingly cold in the frequent wind.

    Thanks I have read some of that. The seasons all start on April 1. I am not afraid of the cold, but the ice worries me. i just want to get out and look at the landscape and figure, if possible, i might do it with a fishing rod in my hand!

    I don't blame you one bit. If you are going all that way, you might as well see what the wildlife is up to.
    I know we have a couple of members on that tiny Island. Hope someone sees this in time to give you a hand.

    There is always the ocean.

    Yah, Would have liked to do that! Any suggestions for a first time Iceland visitor? I''m going for a week. My wife has planned the usual things, northern lights, glacier trip, would love to do some snowmobiling.
