Skaftá –  Ásgarður

The Ásgarð beat in River Skaftá is a short beat that can vary greatly year from year with the shifting of the glacial river Skaftá and shifting of the sand bottom. At the top of the beat, the famed sea-trout river Tungulækur runs into the Skaftá and the fishing tends to be best where the fresh water from Tungulækur mixes with the glacial water of Skaftá. Usually the best fishing is early in the season, April and May. The fall season can also be good but depends largely on the water condition of the Skaftá river.
