EYRARVATN-THORISSADAVATN – GEITABERGSVATN

Region: West Iceland
Coordinates: 64.4329° N 21.5115° W

Since those three lakes lie in a line along road 50 and 520 and are connected with short rivers, it is ideal to describe them under one headline. The fishing licenses are, however, sold separately for each lake. Their total area is 3,12 km² and all of them are located 77 m above sea level. Their depths are between 12 and 24 m. The WMCA summer camp is located on lake Eyrarvatn in the Vatnaskogur (Lake Forrest).

The catch consists of brown trout, lake char and sea char. The char usually weighs 1-3 pounds and often 5-12 pound brown trout are landed, especially from the lakes Thorisstadavatn and Geitabergsvatn. The river connecting the two is called Thvera and between the former and lake Eyrarvatn is river Selos.

In good years quite a few salmons enter the lakes and the chance of catching them in those short rivers is reasonably good.
The distance from the capital is about 75 km (somewhat shorter by the Whale Bay tunnel).
