River Blanda is one of the best salmon rivers in the country with a strong, large salmon population. There have always been a lot of salmon in the river, but before it was dammed it was very turbid, so the salmon rarely saw the fly or bait and hooking (? – is this gaffing?) was the main fishing method. Now, people can use other methods and fly fishing is quite popular. The fishing at beat one in Blanda starts in June and it is difficult to find a salmon river, which generally returns as good a catch in June and early July. Dammurinn and Breiðan are fishing spots that give good fishing through the whole season. The river is about 125 km in length, which makes it the eighth longest in the country and the catchment area is about 2300 square kilometers.
