The Reykjadalsa is a tributary of the Laxa I Adaldal. A few salmon run it but the trout fishing is the focus. The river flows for 35 km and is serviced by one lodge offering fishing to just six anglers leaving lots of water to explore. In the upper section the river flows relatively fast and the angler will find countless numbers of small pools and deep holes suitable for dry fly fishing or prospecting with a nymph. As it flows down its course the water slows and meanders through meadows where there are long glides and deep pools where fish feed freely with confidence. Although the brown trout are not as large as some other Icelandic trout and average 1 2 lbs there are a few larger specimens lurking to 8 lbs. The river is more akin to a UK chalkstream with crystal clear water and large amounts of weed growth common. Slower sections can test an anglers watercraft at times. The midge bibio and nymph fishing can be excellent. Punctuated by some char along with the odd salmon to liven things up the Reykjadalsa is ideal for small groups of friends looking for a private fishery to themselves. REYKJADALS WHEN The season runs from 15 May to 15 September with July considered to be prime time for dry fly fishing.
