River East Rangá merges with the river Þverá about 5 km east of the confluence of West Rangá and river Þverá. In recent years, the East Ranga has established itself as one of the best salmon rivers in the country. The average catch for the last five years is 4.300 salmon per year, but in the summer of 2020, 9070 salmon were caught in the river. Efforts have been made in recent years to catch large salmon to use as brood stock. This has resulted in greater proportion of large salmon, and the catch has also increased earlier in the season.
