Home of many 20-pounders, the Sog River is recognized as one of the finest Atlantic salmon rivers in Iceland. Sog is the largest spring fed river in Iceland and is renowned for its amazing bird-life, beautiful surroundings and high percentage of multi-sea-winter salmon. Sog has a very good stock of Arctic char and every year char of size 5-6 pounds are caught. Sog river is only 65 km east from our lovely capital Reykjavik.

The Bildfell beat is the most productive beat on the Sog and frequently produces the heaviest salmon each year meaning salmon of 20 pounds or bigger. The name of the other beats are Asgardur, Alvidra, Sydri-Bru, Tannastadir and Thrastarlundur. Sog river is all private water and has six salmon beats and a total of 13 rods. The salmon season is from June 24 until September 24.
Accommodation is provided in a very comfortable self catering lodge beside the river. The lodge has a well equipped kitchen for cooking, 4 twin bedded bedrooms, WC & shower, dining and sitting room. Also, the lodge has a separate storage room for waders, fishing clothing and an icebox for storing the fish caught.

Most common flies are Red & Black Frances, Blue Charm, Red & Green But, Snaelda, Sunray Shadow and other tradition Icelandic flies. Fly fishing and spinning is allowed with catch & release policy.
