Arnarvatnsá & Skagaheiði

Lakes and Rivers in the upland Arnarvatnsheidi and Skagaheidi.

Those upland moors have plenty of beautiful lakes and small rivers to fish. The main species found here are non-migratory Arctic char, but there are some big Brown trout in the lakes, which run into the rivers late in autumn and are commonly caught in the spring. It is not unusual to catch a char around 2 lbs and the trout can be up to 7-8 lbs.
