The waterfall Urriðafoss in river Þjórsá is one of the well-known natural pearls of Iceland, but an enormous number of salmon passes through the waterfall, mainly in June. Þjórsá holds one of the largest wild salmon stocks in the country and angling in Urriðafoss is often like in a fairy tale. Angling in the waterfall did not start until 2017, but it has already established itself as one of the best salmon fishing areas in the country. The catch in 2020 was 990 salmon and in the summer of 2021, 823 salmon were landed
Urriðafoss B is the upper part of the farm Urriðafoss which reaches up to the upper bridge. The best fishing spots are Hestvík, Grjótin, Kláfur and Sandholt. However, after the 14th of July Sandholt follows the main area of Urriðafoss.
