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
Þjórsártún is the east bank of Þjórsá, opposite Urriðafoss. The angling in Þjórsártún is a pilot project that provides new information every year. There is little experience of angling in the area and fishing only takes place on the days when the nets are not in the river or on the rest days of net farmers.
