Djúpavatn is lake of 0.15 km² in area, south of Trölladyngja and Soga on the Reykjanes peninsula. It lies at 195m above sea level. The deepest part of the lake is close to 17m, and it is a crater lake. The environment is extremely beautiful and peaceful. There are a lot of char in the lake, but they are quite small. The lake was thought to be fishless, then char from lake Þingvallavatn were released around 1960. The lake is very popular with families, the environment is very child-friendly, and tickets are only sold to the one group of people at a time. Every year, a considerable number of good brown trout are released into the lake, so fishing prospects are good all summer. Anglers are asked to be modest in their catch of stocked fish and to familiarize themselves with the rules that apply there.
