Myrarkvisl is a tributary to the famous Laxa in Adaldalur. This is a relatively small river with great character and diversity. The length of the river is about 25 km and is fished with max 4 rods.
Although not holding the biggest trout you can find on the island, the trout in Myrarkvisl are in great condition and good fun to catch.
This is a catch and release river with average catch of about 500 trout each season. Dry fly fishing works really well here but nymphs and streamers are also effective.
Laxa in Adaldalur offers some of the best wild brown trout fishing to be found in Iceland.
The trout beats on Laxa are divided between three sections of the river. The upper part is called Laxa in Myvatnssveit, the middle part is Laxa in Laxardalur and the lower part (below the dam) is referred to by the locals as Torfur.
Although not as well known by visiting anglers, this section of the river also offers superb trout fishing.
Dry fly fishing works really well here but nymphs and streamers are also effective.
