The pond Hrísatjörn is by Árgerðisbrún, just south of Dalvíkurbær and 42 km away from Akureyri. It is said to be 5 m above sea level and has an estimated area of 0.17 km². Trout and charr of 1-3 pounds have been stocked into the pond in the past but this practice has now been stopped. There are a considerable number of fish in Hrísatjörn that swim up through a small stream that flows from the pond to Svarfaðardalsá. These fish are sea-run char and sea trout. There still seem to be some resident trout in the pond, often quite large. All legal bait is allowed, but it is difficult to use spinners during the summer due to the vegetation in the pond. During the winter, it is possible to go ice fishing on Hrísatjörn.
