What can be fished

Description

Langadalsá is deep in Ísafjarðardjúp and runs from Þorskafjarðarheiði into Nauteyrarós. It’s considered to be a late summer river but there are a fair number of two year-old salmon in the system. Salmon stocks have been increasing following mandatory catch and release of large salmon which started in 2013. The river runs in well-vegetated lowlands north of Langidalur. In addition to salmon fishing, there is often good char fishing in the river. The average catch over the last 15 years is about 310 salmon. The river is fished two days at a time, from noon to noon.

Accomodation options

Angling lodge

Close to the river there is a nice, spacious fishing house that consists of two cabins connected by a large terrace. In one cabin there is a lounge and a kitchen and in the other are eight roomy double bedrooms. The accommodation is set up for sleeping bags but it’s also possible to get made up beds. A fish cleaning room house and a sauna are on the terrace, also a gas grill. Great facilities for anglers and their families!

Anglers can arrive one hour before the fishing starts but on the day of departure, they should evacuate the house no later than an hour after the fishing. Guests are asked to clean the house well and take out the rubbish.

The fishing house is included in the price of fishing permits

Directions
