Svarfaðardalsá

Svarfaðardalsá is like Hörgá, this river has the tendency to be colored in spring time and on warm sunny days. Regardless,  it´s very nice to fish Svarfaðardalsá in the summer. There are 5 beats in Svarfaðardalsá to choose from, beats 3 and 5 being the most popular. The catch consists mainly of Arctic char. Although a few Brown trout and Sea trout are caught every summer on beats 1 and 2. The size of the char averages around 1.5 lbs, but fish up to 3 lbs are not unusual.
