River Varma has frequently been among the top sea-trout rivers in Iceland in number of fish caught. The river is small and relatively easy to fish with abundant fishing spots. Short pools with fast streams and meadows as well as rapids and waterfalls.

Good numbers of artic char, as well as few salmon are caught every year on this productive river.
