In the last few decades Iceland has quickly become one of the Fly Fishing Meccas of the world, and for good reason, endless rivers and lake, clear water and strong stocks of wild and nativee to wade into it.
The western lake Fridmundarvotn has an area of 6 km², its greatest depth is 2,25 m and it is situated 441 m above sea level. Both lakes contain lake char and brown trout. They were both netted in earlier times. One of three main roads across the central highlands, Kjalvegur, passes very near the lakes.
The distance from the capital is about 240 km by the Kjalvegur road.
