Straumarnir (Í Hvítá)

Straumarnir is a two rod fishing beat on the Hvíta, (White river) in the Borgarfjördur district, just below the junction of the famous Nordurá and Hvítá.  The water of Nordurá flows clear along the right bank for some distance before it is gradually mixed with the glacial waters of Hvítá.  When the salmon runs are entering Nordurá the fish sometimes take the bait eagerly at this junction.


This beat is now leased to the angling service Starir ehf.  Their E-mail address is .  Phone 354-852-0401.
