Salmon fishing in Norðurá this summer has been plentiful. Over 386 salmon have been landed which is similar to average catch for the same period in previous years according to the river warden. This years salmon migration numbers have reached some of the largest runs recorded. Plenty of salmon have entered the upper regions of the valley already. The water-temperature is ideal and water-levels remain good.
The tide has been high this week with plenty of catches much to the joy of anglers fishing in the river. At the lower reaches numerous trout have been caught. All in all this is shaping up to being an excellent angling summer.
