The river is relatively small, making it the perfect stage for some fantastic sight fishing for salmon with single handed rods and small flies. Hitching is a very effective style of fishing on the Hrutafjardara, a method considered by many as the most entertaining form of salmon fishing. Hruta’s comfortable lodge is close is situated adjacent to the lower pools. The interior is recently refurbished and comprises four bedrooms, sitting room with nice fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, a drying room for waders, etc., and an extended veranda with a hot tub.
The leaseholder of the Hrutafjardara River is the Angling service Strengir.
