Our jungle fishing trips give you the chance of getting close to the life on the amazing Cheow Lan Lake, and in the jungle rivers in Khao Sok, which is one of Thailand’s major National Parks. You can expect to find idyllic fishing waters, wonderful wild fish and magnificent scenery; a jaunt like this together with the incredible wildlife and beautiful natural surroundings, is just so much more than a fishing trip.
Vast areas of Thailand are jungle.
Almost a third of the country is covered in dense jungle; Cheow Lan Lake and the jungle rivers in Khao Sok National Park are in the south. Here you have the opportunity to experience the best wild freshwater fishing in Thailand. The Jungle Rivers run crystal clear from the mountains through the Lake and hide some outstanding fly fishing for Thai and Blue Mahseer. The lake fishing has become famous for providing top action with surface lures for fish species like; Hampala Barb and Giant Snakehead and together with the fly-fishing for Mahseer and Giant Gourami, make this area a top fishing venue for fly and lure fisherman.
Giant Snakehead Fishing
The Giant Snakehead are by many Thai lure fishermen, their favorite freshwater species and it’s not without good reason; they hunt their prey with an aggression rarely found in other fish.
They are the true killing machines that unmercifully attack their victim. An ambush predator that often lie in shallow water, in thick vegetation or behind a log for passing prey they can pounce on. It is the Snakehead’s love of frogs that makes surface fishing for them so interesting. If you enjoy the excitement of explosive top-water strikes, you will love this fish species.
In the clear rivers that run deep inside the unspoiled jungle, lives the Mighty Mahseer. These are trophy Jungle Rivers, where huge fish cautiously cruises in deep pools and feed most of the day
The rivers offer top quality fishing with dry flies and Nymph and some amazing sight fishing; which is one of the most exciting and rewarding ways to catch the Mahseer. If you are a trout fly fisherman, you will definitely like these rivers. The Mahseer also live in the lake and this is where, you have the chance for the largest fish. On our lake fishing trips, you will also have the chance to target other species.
Giant Gourami Fishing
We are extremely excited to be the first fishing guide services that can offer Guided Giant Gourami fly-fishing in Thailand.
The huge lake has a big population of good-sized Giant Gourami and provides some exciting sight fly fishing. Gouramis are very sensitive and spook very easily and are considered by many anglers; as one of the most difficult freshwater species to catch on fly. You casting skills are important; not so much the distance, but accuracy and a quick delivery. If you enjoy the thrill of the hunt, you will enjoy chasing this hard fighting fish species.
We offer fishing and living in ‘several’ different ways.
When fishing on the Lake you will stay in a floating bungalow. When fishing the Jungle Rivers will you have the chance to fish in several rivers in the area.
We do day trips to one of the rivers and you will have the opportunity to fish a new river on the next day. You are transported in longtail boats to the fishing grounds. You can also choose to move further up the rivers and camp overnight. Camp near the river and sleep in a hammock. The other option is that you return to your bungalow at the end of the day.
