Salmon river Korpa

River Korpa is a remarkable salmon river. Large runs of salmon on this low-volume river are virtually unique in today’s world. This little, peaceful river is one of the country’s most productive salmon rivers, based on catch per rod per day. The Korpa is located only 15 minutes away from downtown Reykjavík and therefore, ideal for travellers who want to try salmon fishing in Iceland without too much fuss. River Korpa is fished with only two daily rods at a time and frequently producing 200 to 400 salmon in a single season. The entire river from source to estuary is 7 km long, so there is ample space. Permits are sold on daily basis.
