Villingavatn Lake

Villingavatn lake
Despite being small, lake Villingavatn is the home to some very big brown trout. It has been kept under the radar for years, and only been fished by selected few. From the lake a small stream runs into lake Thingvallavatn, connecting the two lakes, allowing the Thingvallavatn trout to enter the lake.

The lake has four rod limitation. The lake is split into two beats, beat D-1 on the west bank and beat D-2 on the east bank. Each beat is fished with two rods. The lake is fly-fishing only and catch and release.
