What can be fished

Description

Jökla II is a relatively new fishing area at a reasonable price! Catches have been surprisingly good, with over 30 salmon caught in 2019 and over 100 in the summer of 2020. Jökla II is fly fishing only, which suits the river perfectly. Anglers are encouraged to release as many salmon as possible to help boost the population (there are good spawning and rearing conditions that are underutilized in the river). Jökla II is a large area and reaches now up to rapids at Kastið just below the farm Hákonarstaðir, but below that new and exciting fishing spots have been discovered!
