The Kjarra is the upper part of the Thvera/Kjarra. It is 45 kilometres long and is fished with just 7 rods on seven private beatsthat rotate every fishing shift. There are 92 named pools on the river offering great variety to the angler.
The fishing is organised on a three or six day basis, commencing mid-afternoon on the first day and ending at noon on the last day of fishing. Fishing is permitted for up to 12 hours each day. Fishing hours are normally from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and then again from 3.30 to 9.30 p.m., unless groups prefer otherwise.
The Kjarra offers a vast variety of pools and is characterized by its remoteness and untouched nature. The river varies greatly in character, from steep canyon pools with challenging fly water to the more easily accessible pools in the Kjarra valley. In these truly unique surroundings one can fish for days on end in total privacy in the midst of the Icelandic highlands.
