Gufudalsa is a delicate and hauntingly beautiful sea char river in the middle of Bardastrond, on the south coast of the Western Fjords. The fishing area is quite long as the river is fished with four rods. The upper most part of the river is in a canyon full of falls, potholes and birch covered hills and cliffs. Further down, the land spreads out over a lush valley, where it files through a small lake before finally winding through some flatlands and into the estuary.
A good looking pool on the middle beats.
This river is a great favorite with families as the main fish are the modestly sized sea char, 1 to 3 pounds and children are allowed free fishing in the lake and often turn up with some fine catches. The lodge is big and comfortable. It is self catering, fished with four daily rods and access to pools is usually very good although some walking must be mustered at the top of the river in the canyon.
