Brynjudalsá is a small salmon river only 45 minutes away from the capital of Iceland, Reykjavik. It is a great option for daytrips from the capital or couple of days of fishing. We can offer different kinds of accommodation for anglers in the area, from a summer lodge to a fully serviced hotel. The catch statistics are wonderful for this small river as its produces an average of 240 salmon last 5 years with last year finishing in 303 salmon.

From Ross Macdonald  We are back in business. The new season is underway and everyone is relieved to be fishing again.
January was a long and difficult month on Deeside. Fishing is one thing, but the impact on people's lives has been profound and I am sure all our anglers will wish the community well. The fishery suffered with the rest of the community and with typical grit the owners and ghillies have worked tirelessly to get ready for our opening on 1 February. It is to their great credit we were ready to welcome back our anglers. The fishery is a bit rough around the edges and while it will take time to restore the infrastructure to pre-Frank condition, the Dee is very much open for business.
