What can be fished

Description

This is an historic salmon area, although not many salmon are caught there every year. This is the east bank of the Laxá River, between the Nesveiða and Laxamýri beats. Árbót is best known today for good brown trout fishing, but every summer several salmon are landed that can be in the “overweight category”. This is a great option for families or a small group of friends. A good fishing house is available that needs to be booked separately.

Accomodation options

Fishing cabin

The fishing cabin Vörðuholt can be booked separately. It is spacious, with three double rooms. It has a good living room with a fireplace and a well-equipped kitchen. The terrace has outdoor furniture and a gas grill. Anglers can access the house delivered from 15.00 and must leave before 13.00 on the day of departure.

Fishing rules

The anglers divide the area themselves
