Jökla, (Jökulsá á Dal).

Since the hydro-electric plant was build at Kárahnjúkar, the big, glacical river "Jökla" has changed from the dark and heavily silted water it used to be, into a medium sized clear and quite fishable river for most of the year.  But when the dam is owerflowing the river takes on it's old caracter and can not be fished until it clears again.  Usually this happen rather late in the angling season.

In the past few years tha Angling service Strengir has released a lot of smolts into Jökla and it's tributaries  (Laxá, Fossá and Kaldá) with promising results.
