River Selá is one of the best-known salmon rivers in the country. It flows from the highlands above the settlement in Vopnafjörður to the sea in the fjord. Many of those who fish the Selá are foreign anglers. There are few places where people have more space in kilometers per rod than in Selá. The fishing fluctuates a lot as with all rivers in the northeastern corner, but in recent years the catch has rarely gone below 5-600 salmon. Good summers yield 1200 to 1300 salmon, and there is plenty of life and excitement on the banks of Selá.
