What can be fished

Description

River Hólsá – the West bank is a well-known two rod fishing section at the bottom of the Rangá water system. Anglers can expect good catches as many salmon migrate through the area on their way to Ytri Rangá and Eystri Rangá and Þverá. The fishing is often good in the autumn, especially when sea trout migrate up the river. The catch in recent years is between 250 – 600 salmon.
