West Ranga/Ytri Rangá
West Rangá, is one of the best known salmon river in Iceland. Not only for its beauty and great variety of fishing pools, but also for the high volume of salmon caught there every year. West Rangá usually ends as the most productive salmon river in Iceland.
Stability is why the West Rangá produces such high numbers of salmon per rod/day. It is never low in water. It is seldom, if ever coloured due to flooding and heavy rains. The only enemy could be high winds, but there is always the opposite bank….right?
The headwaters of West Rangá are near the foot of the spectacular Mt. Hekla, one of the country’s active volcanoes. This entirely spring-fed source is responsible for both the consistent water temperature and flow.
