This spring fed river was called Djupa (The Deep River) in the past, when it received
glacial water from the unheeded river Markarfljot.
It is about 18 km long from the ocean to the confluence of the rivers
Ytri-Ranga and Thvera. The western bank of the
river is relatively easily accessible and the catch is sea trout
and sea char of all sizes and salmon as
well. This river, like the Thvera and the West Ranga and
East Ranga, is totally dependant on a massive smolt releasing
program. for salmon fishing. The distance from
the capital is about 95 km.
