Lake Villingavatn is renowned for the large sized brown trout. The fishing section boasts a high percentage of brown trout in the 4lbs-12lbs category and several larger ones are hooked every year. The fishing is mostly practiced by using light single handed fly rods and floating lines. Nymphing and fishing with wet flies is usually the most rewarding technique. The fishing is practiced entirely from the lake shore or by using waders. Fly fishing only and catch & release. Lake Villingavatn is located approx 50 km east of Reykjavik.
