Baulįrvallavatn is located at the Snęfellsnes peninsula in the western part of Iceland.
Distance from Reykjavķk and the nearest township
Distance from Reykjavik is approx. 200 km. and about 15 km from Grundarfjoršur and Stykkishólmur to the north. Snęfellsnes“ new highway makes it possible to drive directly to the lake.
Baulįrvallavatn covers about 1, 6 km2 and has the maximum deep of 47 metres. It rises 193 metres above sea level. The lake receives water from the Vatnaį river, and dispatches it to the Baulį river. The latter merges with the Straumfjaršarį river, which is renowned for salmon fishing.
Fishing is only allowed between the northern bank of the river Vatnaį and the river Straumfjaršarį.
Camping is free of charge, however there are no toilets or any other hygiene facilities.
There is an excellent prospect for brown trout fishing. The average size of an individual catch is about 2-3 pounds. In the twilight zone we have experienced larger catch, all up to 5-6 pounds.
Daily opening hours
Fishing is allowed from dawn to dusk.
Spring to 30th September.
All bait is allowed: fly, worm and lure.
The fish can lay very deep in the water so it is better to let the bait sink very deep. Lure and worm normally work very well. In the twilight zone however, the brown trout goes to the shallow waters, where fly fishing should be recommended.
Best time of the year
The catch is consistent all season. The twilight zone is the best time of the day.
Littering is forbidden. Cardholders must sign up at Vegamót and show both the Veišikortiš and an appropriate ID. Children under 14 are allowed for me, if accompanied by adult cardholder.
