Fisheries

A Hidden Gem in the Highlands – The river Kaldakvísl is truly a hidden gem. Fished only by a select few, Kaldakvísl has now been made exclusively available only to the customers of Fish Partner. Words are unequal to the task of describing the landscape’s beauty. Diversity and contrasts are the river’s main characteristics.
Sight-fishing in gin clear water – Tungnaá is a formerly milky glacial river that became gin clear in 2013 as a consequence of a newly opened hydro-electric power plant. The new plant transformed this formerly rough, dark river into a fascinating crystal-clear stream, flowing into beautiful miniature canyons as well as more traditional pools filled with both Ice Age brown trout and big arctic char.
The Most Scenic Beat in Lake Thingvallavatn – The Kárastaðir beat (Beat 1) is in the north end of Lake Thingvallavatn where river Öxará, the brown trout’s main spawning stream, runs into the lake. The giant trout travels in groups and is often found circling around the beat where fishermen can run into great adventures.

A hidden gem – Despite being small, Lake Villingavatn is the home to some very large brown trout. From the lake a small stream runs into lake Thingvallavatn, connecting the two lakes and allowing the Thingvallavatn trout to enter the lake when the creek floads.
Tungufljót river in Skaftafell is one of the best known Sea trout rivers in Iceland and is most famous for the high average weight of fish caught, every year multiple Sea-Run Brown trout in the 20lbs range are caught with the average weight of the fish being between 5-10 pounds.
Vatnamót has one of the highest catch rates of sea-run browns anywhere in the world. With an average of 1500 sea-trout logged each year.
