Austurey is a fun trout fishing beat in Hólaá in Árnessýsla. It is only permitted to fish on the south side of the river, or on the side where the farm Austurey stands. It’s forbidden to wade over to the other bank that belongs to Laugardalshólar. It is possible to fish for both char and trout. Fly fishing has mostly been used in recent years and it is great fun to use dry fly when conditions allow.
