Hraunsfjörður is an exceptionally enjoyable fishing area. The area is vast and full of fish: Arctic char, sea trout and salmon. Fishing is very good in July and August, but anglers have also enjoyed good spring fishing in April and May, especially for sea-run char. The fish mainly eat flies in the spring, but in late summer char move to the innermost part of the lake and are often found where the inlet streams join the lake, especially on hot days. Fishing is evenly distributed over the summer, but there is undeniably more likelihood of catching salmon and sea trout in August.
