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.

Easy Fishing

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!

Relaxing

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?

Specimen Hunting

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.

Thaivisa ForumA 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.

Nice site, Thanks for all the information, Chiang Mai has some great lakes and do not forget the Ping River there are some monsters lurking in there, as well as easy to catch small fry!

A great day was had at Chiang Mai fishing park. I went with a friend and her 7 year old son( He is a regular) All about 4-5 kg. His count about 7 or 8 and about 15 to me in the afternoon. Very cheap, about 50 baht for hire of rod and I think 30 baht for the bucket of bait. Was a Sunday afternoon, so there were a lot of locals and families having a day out fishing. They even had a fishing competition in the afternoon. Staff were friendly and plenty of extremely cold drinks to purchase if needed. (In Ice) I never tried but the locals recommend the food served there. Fresh fish can be cooked if you manage to get one from the small ponds as well. Overall a great relaxing day out.

Great day was had in Bosang fishing park and about 25 got pulled in that afternoon all about 25kg plus up to 37kg.
It got pretty tiring after the first 10, so take a mate or two and share the experience. Owners and staff were extremely accommodating and friendly.

Hi, I am coming over to Chiangmai in 2 weeks time and will be staying at Le Meridian. Will like to drop by to the lake to fish for couple of hours in the afternoon. Will it be easy for me to catch a taxi at the lake to go back to my hotel in the evening.
Regards

    Hi Robert,

    If you get a taxi from your hotel to the fishing park the taxi driver will normally wait there for you to finish and then bring you back to your hotel!

    they sell all manner of fishing tackle on ebay and may well have what you want.

    All fishing shops and fish farms have tackle shops that sell various sorts. Try emailing one of them. I am sure they will post out if you supply money. I bought about 15 back with me from Chiang Mai. About 15-30 baht each dependant on size. They are not heavy so should be easy/cheap to post.

    Hi Sid,
    Sorry for the delayed message!
    There are a few nice places to visit for a days fishing in Chiang Mai which will give you lots of fun.
    1 Bor Sang Fishing park
    2. Chiang mai Fishing park
    These are very cheap day ticket waters and will give you lots of fun.

    3. Teak Tree lake is more of an exclusive private fishing park in Chiang Mai.

    If you are looking for a place to stay and fish outside of Chiang Mai i would suggest staying at Bueng Pai Farm or Pai Piranha Fishing park!

    Take a look at our lakes and there are links to their websites giving you plenty of info!

    Hope this helps!

    Tight lines

    Regards Kenny

    Hi Sid, I am up in Chiang Rai, Thailands most northern Province. It has lots of temples including Wat Rong Khun (The White Temple and the area is rich in Lanna culture with lots of touristy type things, Hilltribe villages, Museums etc.
    We have a couple of good fishing venues which are very close to town. Also the time you are planning your trip is low season so accommodation prices are favourable.
    If you require any further information about Chiang Rai just let me know your e-mail and I will forward it to you.

    Best Wishes
    Glenn

Hi Lyle,
AEG fishing park is out by Maejo somewhere! I’m yet to go there but I’m planning a trip out to find this place sometime during this weekend! It’s located somewhere down Ban Mae cho Soi 9.
More info to follow,
Regards
Danny

Anyone heard of AEG fishing park? Is it in Chiang Mai or on the outskirts of the province somewhere? Cost, types of fish they have, etc.

I’m sorry, that’s a little out of our reach at the moment – but we are open to ideas if anyone else has any info? We’ve only had this site up for about 6 weeks so we’ve been busy working our way out from Chiang Mai central area. Lampang soon!

I agree with you that Thaivisa fishing forum is the best option for chatting about fishing, but you might also take a look at their main forum competition, http://www.teakdoor.com/chiang-mai-forum It isn’t a fishing specific forum, just regional, but does have a few fishing threads that you can search for.
