Lake Skorradalsvatn has an area of
14,7 km². It is 16 km long and mostly 1 km wide. Its greatest depth is 48 m and its
surface lies 57 m above sea level. The river Fitjaa feeds it and its discharge is
Andakilsa. When the hydroelectric power station was built on it, the lake surface rose
as a result of the construction of the dam.
Lake char is abundant,
but most of it small (1 pound). Every summer a few very large lake chars (17 pounds) and brown trout
(14 pounds) are caught. They are mostly caught in the deepest areas from
boats with spinners.
Fly, spoon and worm.
The distance from the capital is about 92 km (somewhat shorter by the Whale Bay tunnel).
