Go salmon fishing in Iceland and fish River Sog for Atlantic salmon
The River Sog lies in the south of Iceland, around a one hour drive to the east from Reykjavik. It is the largest spring-fed river in Iceland and runs from Lake Thingvallatn to its junction with the glacier-fed river Hvita although, due to hydro-electric installations, only some 12 kms are passable by salmon.
The River Sog has a healthy population of salmon and arctic char. Most of the salmon are grilse in the 5 – 10 lbs range but a fair number of multi-sea-winter fish are caught each year ranging up to  lbs. The char average [1 lb] but run up to  lbs.
The Sydri Bru beat is the private left bank of the top [2.5/3] kms of the fishable section of the river and fishes one rod. It has  pools although the majority of fish are caught in the top (home) pool. Annual salmon catches on the beat range from [110 to 240] fish. Fishing is with either single-handed or light double-handed rods and floating lines.
As the water level in the river is controlled by the hydro-electric dams above the beat, low water, even in a dry summer, is not a problem.
The lodge at Sydri Bru is a self catering lodge, but full on board accommodation can be arrange up on request. The Lodge it is unusually spacious and comfortable for a fishing lodge with a large kitchen and sitting/dining area (with WIFI and TV), three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The lodge is a short drive from the town of Selfoss which has a number of good restaurants and convenient shopping.
If our guests like the privacy at the lodge but rather like some fine dining instead of self catering, Grimsborgir restaurant is only 5 min drive from the lodge. Grimsborgir restaurant welcomes our guest to the restaurant and bar.
