What can be fished


Úlfarsá, is a great salmon river in beautiful surroundings close to Reykjavík. Near the Vesturlands-road the river’s name changes to Korpúlfsstaðaá (called Korpa for short) from the road down to the sea. The normal width of Úlfarsá is 10 – 20 m, it’s clear and the current is not too strong. A lot of work has been put into remaking or creating fishing spots. This improvement of the river has made it even more accessible for fly fishing. The river is a fully sustainable wild salmon fishery, with no juvenile releases taking place there. Anglers are obliged, if requested, to allow the taking of scales and other samples from the fish that they catch. Anglers are not permitted to fish within 50 meters above and below the salmon ladder on the Korpa.

Accommodation & Facilities

Angling lodge

There is a nice  fishing hut on the riverbank. A perfect place to  have lunch and organize the fishing. There is also a toilet  in the lodge. Anglers are requested to keep the lodge clean, and take good care of the river and its surroundings. The code for the keyhouse is 1939.      


The Fishing Lodge is located at Blikastaðakró. Drive Vesturlandsvegur and then turn down to Korpúlfstaðavegur, from there take a turn to Barðastaðir and drive down to Korpúlfsstaðavellir. At the end of Barðastaðir there is a short distance on a gravel road to the fishing lodge.
