The River Eldvatn, Meðallandi, in Vestur-Skaftafellssýsla is suitable for sea trout with occasional salmon and char caught too. The fishing area is one of the most beautiful in the country, with several diverse fishing spots. There is a considerable amount of fishing but it can be difficult to find the fish as they do not often rise to the surface. The fishing season 2019 yielded about 500 sea trout with about 150 fish longer than 70 cm. Three of the largest were 90, 93 and 95 cm long.
In the spring of 2013, a new tenant took over river Eldvatn: the fishing association Unubót. In collaboration with all landowners in the Eldvatn water area and with anglers, the breeding and release of sea trout juveniles was undertaken to maintain and build up the stocks of the Skaftfell sea trout. It has certainly worked well.
