Gufuá is a small and fragile river. In drought summers the upper part of the river can have low water, while the lower part is completely different. There, the river has deep pockets and dark pools. The fishing spots that are close to the estuary of Gufuá are tidal, but anglers don’t fish in saltwater but in the freshwater backed up by the tide from Hvítá into Gufuá. When there is high tide the pools can be lively and the biting of the salmon great. The best time to fish Gufuá is in July. The normal total catch in the river is around 150 – 220 salmon annually and the highest catch was 300 salmon. In the river there are around 50 marked fishing spots, but experience from later years shows that they are much more numerous. The lower part of the river is still unexplored with respect to angling. Until now, most of the fish have been caught on worms but fly fishing has increased in recent years.
