Giant Snakehead Fishing in Cheow Lan Lake Khao Sok
Thai Freshwater Fishing offers top class Giant Snakehead fishing in Cheow lan Lake Thailand! Fighting a Big Giant Snakehead – which has one of the most powerful strikes of any fresh water fish – is the ultimate fishing adventure in Thailand. For a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience we recommend that your trip takes up a minimum of three days.
The Giant Snakehead is a very territorial and aggressive fish, especially when with its young. This fish is known to hide underneath trees and other greenery, which means that just throwing the lure close enough can be a challenge in itself! On these trips you are also likely to catch the hard-fighting Hampala Barb.
Giant Snakehead Fishing is done from long tail boats (with electric engine!), which in some ways can be compared to Pike fishing (with lure), except these fish are much more powerful than the Pike! The Giant Snakehead is a top predator fish. It will take surfac lures, diving lures, popper flies and largs streamers.When we fish in the weedy and snag areas we use top water lures and in the deeper water we use deep diving lures. The Giant Snakehead take the lure hard and will dive to the nearest snag or cover with constant head shaking. Giant snakehead fishing is adrenaline fishing at its best!
If you are up for even more adventures we can take you on a Jungle River Fishing experience as well. You can choose to move higher up the rivers and camp overnight. (sleep in a hamock, camp near the river. Thai Freshwater Fishing is the only company who got experience with camping in the jungle). Fishing in places where few people have been fishing before, or you can return to our camp at the end of the day. Giant Snakehead usually never go up the river this far but you will meet Hampala Barb and the extremely powerful Thai Mahseer.
Fly Fishing for Thai Mahseer in the rivers of Khao Sok
We offer the ultimate guided fly fishing trips for the strong Thai Mahseer and Hampala barb in Khao Soks fantastic rivers. The best Mahseer fishing in Thailand! For an optimum fishing experience we recommend fishing trips of at least three days.
Fly Fishing for Thai Mahseer and Hampala Barb is similar to fishing for trout in New Zealand or English chalk streams: the fish is very shy, but you can often spot them in the clear water (sight fishing). They will take nymphs, streamers and dry flies. The power of these fish is truly amazing: they hit hard and will put you and your gear to the test! Customers often compare the speed of the Thai Mahseer to the famous saltwater Bonefish. The biggest Thai Mahseer we have heard about in these waters was no less than 17 kilograms!
The rainy season (May to October) is the spawning season for the Thai Mahseer and the Hampala Barb. The biggest Thai Mahseer and Hampala Barb come from Cheow Lan Lake to the smaller streams and rivers to go upstream for spawning. The best time to go fly fishing for these fish is at the end of the rainy season.
During the dry season stocks of Thai Mahseer up to 4 kg inhabit the pools we fish in and offer great action. You can choose to move higher up the rivers and camp overnight. (sleep in a hammock, camp near the river. Thai Freshwater Fishing is the only company who got experience with camping in the jungle). Fly fishing in places where few people have been fishing before, or you can return to our camp at the end of the day.
