River Laugardalsá is in Ísafjarðardjúp on the Westfjords Peninsula and runs into the sea in the western part of Mjóifjörður. It was formerly without any fish, but in 1969 a fishpass was installed, following which the river became a good salmon river. The river is now considered one of the best in the Westfjords with an average catch of nearly 300 salmon. It’s a rather small salmon river with amazing fishing spots and the water velocity is perfect for fly fishing. The catch is mainly 1-year-old salmon but a considerable number of 2-year-old salmon are also caught. There are also a fair number of brown trout in both of the lakes that the river flows through, giving added interest. The river is suitable for small groups who want to be on their own. The rods are always sold together and only two rods are used in the beginning and end of the season. The fishing is for 2-3 days at a time, from noon – noon.
