What can be fished


Langá in Mýrum is one of the best salmon rivers in Iceland and has many fans. It’s a varied river, with 93 listed fishing pools, and has its source in Langavatn, 36 km from the sea. The river is medium-sized, with excellent accessibility and fishing there should suit most people. Many grilse usually migrate into the river, but the fish are known for being strong rather than big. It’s best to fish Langá with a single handed rod, a floating line and small flies, due to the fact that the fish normally lie in shallow water. The take is often adventurous, and salmon in Langá can be a difficult challenge.

Accomodation options

Angling lodge

Anglers can stay in the comfortable Langárbyrgi lodge, which is located on the riverbank by the famous and popular Hvítsstaðahylji (pools). The lodge is newly built with twelve double rooms, each with its own bathroom. In the sauna it’s enjoyable to go over the main achievements of the day and facilities for waders, shoes and other belongings are very good. Full service is at the lodge for the whole season.
