Fishing Chiang Mai is a community website. We have lots of information to share and we hope that you will share your stories too – a community without sharing is hardly a community at all…
Big Catfish Hunter?
If you are in Chiang Mai for a short time and want the best chance to catch a whopper catfish for cheap, then there is really only one choice – get to Bo Sang.
Chiang Mai Fishing Park is full of catfish, from moderate to pretty big. A great place to take the kids – or not… Low prices, easy access and beer on ice!
Pai Piranha Fishing Park. Not in Chiang Mai, but Pai is not so far. Great value rooms, lovely hosts and a big variety of fish. What’s not to like?
Teak Tree Fishing Lake is well worth a few days stay; hunting down specimen carp, catfish and predators. Exclusive world class fishery, with great hosts.
A good place to discuss fishing in Thailand with fellow anglers is at the thaivisa.com Fishing Forum. If you are chatting on the forum please consider mentioning that you found it via the Fishing Chiang Mai website. We’d appreciate the plug, and since we aren’t commercial you won’t be breaking their forum rules (of which there are many!).
You do have to sign-up first, but it is probably the best on-line space to chat with other local fisher folk. Unless you know better? Please feel free to add comments below if you have other suggestions.
