About the river
Indeed, the Hofsa river is yet another glorious northern Iceland salmon river and, again like the Selá, is blessed with the most beautiful fly-fishing water. It is one of Iceland´s most prolific rivers, has seven beats and is perfect for a single or double –handed rods. Salmon can run 30 kilometers up to a large waterfall. The river follows strict conservation measures and produces plenty of fish in the 20-lbs range.
Sport fishing in Iceland was developed by traditional British anglers who were soon followed by American sport fishers. For many years the Hofsá has been a river enjoyed by royals, lords and dignitaries from across the world.
The average catch in Hofsa since 1974 is over 1100 salmons. The catch in Hofsa is very even. It does not fluctuate much although there are years were over 2000 salmons are caught.
