About this river

The Svarta in Bardardalur has sometimes been called the Little Big Laxa. It is smaller than the Big Laxa and the catch rates are not as high. This is a fly only, catch and release river with low pressure and there is always a protected beat where fish never see anglers flies. Dry fly fishing here can be phenomenal but nymphing and streamer fishing can be fantastic as well. The river originates on the Svarta Lake and flows through lava fields until it meets the river Skjalfandafljot which is a glacier river. 

On the River Skjalfandafljot there is one of Iceland's prettiest waterfalls, Godafoss. The fishing on Svarta is for serious trout bums who enjoy roughing it a little, walk, stalk and catch brown trout in wilderness environment.

About the beats

The Mulatorfa and Hraun beats are located below the dam on the Laxa Myvatn. At this stage the river is called Laxa in Adaldalur which is referred to by some as the Big Laxa. The river is famous for it's salmon fishing but these are the trout beats in the river. Average catch rates are around 1000 trout for these beats. These beats are the more affordable of the trout beats in the river but the fishing quality here can be phenomenal. When the hatch is on the whole area is like a melting pot with rising trout all over the place. 

We offer both guided fishing trips to these beats as well as just the fishing permits. There is no lodge for these beats just yet but we can assist in finding proper accommodation. For the "trout bum" element, camping is possible throughout the area.
