Brúara – SEL
The fishing section in the land of Sel is about 5 km long and it is now fished with only 4 rods. In the first part of the summer both brown trout and Arctic char are caught, but further into the summer, it is mostly char. Demand has increased, because it is easy to get to the area and the fishing can be good and there is great natural beauty. There is no trail along the river and therefore people must walk a bit. All those who visit the area are asked to be tidy and fish moderately. The best fishing spots are Eyrin, Staurinn, Hrafnaklettar, the waterfall Dynjandi, Fossbrún og Felgan (abowe Hólmatagl). To get to the Sel fishing section, drive from highway one into Biskupstungnabraut (35) shortly before reaching Selfoss. Then drive directly until Brúará is reached.

Brúara – SPÓASTAÐIR
The fishing area covers a 4.6 km section on the east bank of river Brúará. Unlike in the land of Sel, it is possible to drive to or near most fishing spots in the land of Spóastaðir. The main catch is char, but brown trout are also caught early in the season, as well as occasional salmon and sea trout. Those familiar with the beat have often had adventurous fishing, mostly by fishing upstream with weighted nymphs. The best fishing spots are Breiðibakki (the barrel), Brúin, Klöppin, Ferjunef, Kerlingarvík, Hrafnaklettar and waterfall Dynjandi.
