Lake Skorradalsvatn lies at about 58m above sea level. The lake is about 16km long but only about 1 ~ 1.5km wide for the most part. It is deep – about 48m at the deepest point measured, with an average depth of about 22m. Andakílsá, a well-known salmon river, flows out of the lake, and Fitjaá flows into the lake from Eiríksvatn. Lake Skorradalsvatn has good numbers of fish, mostly small char, but there are also very large char and huge brown trout. It has proved rather difficult to catch these fish on a rod from the shore. Most of the large fish bite when trawling from a boat with large spinners or they are caught in nets. However, this is not always the case and good brown trout are always caught on a rod every year, the largest usually in early summer or autumn. Skorradalsvatn is somewhat shallow closer to land but then it deepens rapidly. There has been good fishing, for example, below Stóra Drageyri where the stream flows into the lake.
