Rivers Hjaltadalsá and Kolbeindalsá are productive char rivers in a beautiful and historical environment in the vicinity of Hólar in Hjaltadal. The rivers merge below the highway and their united name is Kolka and the estuary Kolkuós. The rivers have strong currents, good water levels during the fishing season; enjoyable rivers with teasing currents, calm runs, and deep pools. The char are in the range of 1.5 – 2.5 lbs but of course there are bigger char caught too. There is a good chance of salmon in these rivers with about 50 salmon caught in recent summers, but previously about 100 salmon. About 300 to 400 are caught each year, plus a few sea trout. Fishing spots spread throughout the catchment, far inland along Hjaltadalur and up to a dam in Kolbeinsdalsá.
