Fantastic Brown Trout fishing in Myvatnssveit Iceland

Laxa in Myvatnssveit is a beat on the Laxa in Adaldal river on the north coast of Iceland. This river has produced fish over 12 lbs, which is impressive for wild brown trout! The average size is between 5-7lbs with the occasional 8-9lbs trout.

The upper section of Myvatnssveit is wonderfully braided with fast runs, pockets and crystal clear water. Pools, for the most part, are grass banked, wide, and with a relatively even bottom. There are the intermittent lava shelves that drop away, hidden from someone reading the surface, in turn creating some excellent lies. As these fish live in fast and powerful water they are extremely strong, and hooking one will test your tackle and skill.
