River Hvítá in Árnessýsla is an underestimated fishing river. A huge number of fish pass through it every year, including salmon, sea trout and Arctic char. Hvítá has a good stock of salmon itself but is also a migration route for salmon on their way to other rivers in the catchment. The Skálholt section of Hvítá is just below Hvítárbrú by Iða. It has been in private use for a long time, but now the public can buy fishing licenses there.
