This small, sensitive, gin clear stream is only 3 km long. Despite the diminutive size, this little gem produces brown trout in size range from 1 pound up to 10+, with the average size range of 3 pounds.
Fast flowing pocket water and series of small waterfalls and rapids are ideally suited for upstream nymphing as well as fishing with dry flies.
River Galtalaekur has been catch and release now for many years and without a doubt that is one of the reasons why this little river holds its good size brown trout.
River Galtalaekur is the tributary of the salmon river West Ranga and big brownie monsters are often caught on the junction pool of the two rivers. Just above the junction there are beautiful areas with lots of waterfalls with good looking pools below. Also, anglers are free to walk from the junction pool down the main river and search for brownies.
