Litlaa in Kelduhverfi
Litlaa river is renowned for its strong and fit sea-run trout and arctic char along with good stock of local trout and char. We really like the dates we have for this trip. This is the time of year in the north when it begins to get a little darker in the evenings and the sea-run trout start migrating up river. Litlaa is located in the north east of Iceland, about 140 km from Akureyri.
Originating mainly at lake Skjálftavatn the Litlaa river also gathers water from warm springs. The combination of cold and warm water makes this river unique with water temperature of approximately 10 – 12°C all year round creating good conditions for fast growing and big trout. In addition to the river the lake Skjálftavatn also offers great fishing. Interestingly this lake was formed by a massive earthquake in 1976, hence the name Skjálftavatn meaning Quakelake.
Banging the banks with streamers works well here but nymphs and dry flies are also very effective.
The lodge is very good with single or double rooms and shared facilities. At the lodge we make our own meals in a fully equipped kitchen.
