River Sandá is in northeastern Iceland. The river is known for big salmon, as can be said about most salmon rivers in Þistilfjörður; and many 20 lb salmon have been caught through the years. The biggest recorded salmon in Sandá was 28 lb. However, the river is quite challenging, both for new and experienced anglers. Sandá holds good water levels, and it is very rare that anglers experience a shortage of water. The fishing area is complex, ranging from impressive gorges with high rock walls and fast currents, down to beautiful runs. There are also deep pools, like the Fossbrot by the waterfall in Sandá. That is the most productive spot in the river together with Bjarnadalshylur, which has given most of the big salmon in Sandá over the years.
