One of the island’s major salmon rivers, annually boasting of 1.200 to 2.000 plus catch. It is fished with twelve daily rods and has a very colourful array of pools, ranging from waterfalls to slow moving flat water. The Langa is one of Iceland’s “cleanest” grilse rivers, yet it is a hardy strain with individuals of incredible strength far beyond their size. 1998 saw a catch of just over 1.400 fish but 2008 a catch went cose to 3000 salmon. This river discharges a large inland lake, Langavatn. The Gljufura takes part of the water to supplement the bottom part of the Nordura but the Langa is an average volume river by Icelandic standards.
