River Tungnaá (The Highlands)

Lax-Á proudly presents river Tungnaá in the Highlands!

Tungnaá is a formerly milky glacial river that became gin clear in 2013 as a consequence of a newly opened hydro-electric power plant. The new plant transformed this formerly rough, dark river into a fascinating crystal-clear stream, flowing into beautiful miniature canyons as well as more traditional pools filled with both Ice Age brown trout and big arctic char.

This Highland stream is probably one of the best kept trout-fishing secrets in the world. The river offers a more technical challenge, where stealth, among other attributes, is essential. The native brown trout and arctic char average 3-5 lbs, with some monsters reaching up to 12 lbs.

Tungnaá is perfect to combine with the Kaldakvísl fishing in the Highlands.
