The Huseyjarkvisl River is a 2-3 rod river and produces around two hundred fish per season.
The river is split into a Trout beat and a Salmon beat but there is also a large run of sizeable Sea Trout and the Huseyjarkvisl is regarded as one of the finest Sea Trout rivers in Iceland with many double-figure fish caught each season. All Salmon fishing is guided and the Salmon fishing is divided into one or two beats with one rod per beat. The river is perfect for fly-fishing with some long pools and with nine kilometres of water to fish there is little pressure. Access is generally easy and will suit most anglers. The upper part is rocky and will require some agility.
The Trout beat offers miles of untouched Trout water to where the river joins the glacial Heradsvotn River. The Trout fishing is some of the finest in Iceland with fish averaging 3 lbs. Fish exceeding 5 lbs is not uncommon. In April and May, the river offers good Sea Trout fishing .
Due to the size and numbers of the Sea Trout in the river, there are rods specifically targeting Sea Trout in September as well. Then, five rods are allowed on the river, including the rods fishing the Salmon beats.
All anglers are advised to take all the tackle and gear they will need to fish this river. Rods reels, lines, terminal tackle, waders etc. Single-handed rods will cover most situations, however, a small switch- or double-handed rod could be used if preferred. 6-9#
