This river is the only notable
salmon river in the Eastfiords of
Iceland. It has a vast catchment area with three rivers, the Nordurdalsa,
the mother river, Breiddalsa. A notable smolt stocking program has been started along
the lines of the Ranga stocking programmers. This is said to assure an annual catch of 300
to 500 salmon while before 100 to 150 salmon was the
norm. Apart from the salmon, there is a lot of sea char in the Breiddalsa, mostly in the lower part.
Many are of fine size, 2-4 pounds. Non migratory trout are in the
upper reaches and the upper part of the Breiddalsa has some fine early
summer brown trout fishing.
At Breiddalsa is a first class lodge
for anglers, and the salmon beats will be fished with six daily rods.
The fabulous Breiddalsa lodge was a great
success during its first season in use.Everything
has been put into giving the visiting anglers the maximum
after a good day´s fishing. Non-fishing
guests will now be able to relax and enjoy the surroundings in complete
privacy. Many guests remarked that they had never experienced such a
fantastic fishing lodge, anywhere! Placed near the banks of the river it
offers spectacular views over the river and surrounding high jacket
mountain peaks across the valley. It is also extremely well equipped to
operata all year round and can be used for an office outing, corporate
incentive trips or business meetings in an exotic place.
