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.

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!

    Hi there, the only help I can offer is for you to try this company in Thailand, Email:udontrading100@googlemail.com

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

    Good luck & tight lines.

We want to come to Thailand (Partner and Daughter 13) end July / early August 2014. Obviously we would like family holiday and me with some fishing (Fresh water) and a nice reasonable place to go so we can all enjoy it and some interesting sights, temples and the like. Would anyone please be able to provide any suggestions as to where to go and stay (Not millionaires lol). Thanks Sid

    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 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.
