Nong Bua Lamphu Fishing Park

Nong Bua Lamphu Fishing Park

We recently were invited for a day at the soon to be open Nong Bua Lamphu Fishing Park. Our first impressions were that the venue was well planned, clean and inviting.

The fishing is opening on the 1st of August 2015.

The English owner, Ian, welcomed us warmly and proved to be the ideal host. He explained about his two lakes, what fish he'd stocked into them and his plans for the future.

We fished the first lake, which contained several carp species, and immediately started getting bites. Most of the fish were fairly small, but a 5 kg caho (giant Siamese carp) soon graced the net.

Ian's wife, Lux, cooked a tasty lunch for us, and then we resumed fishing, soon landing a 10 kg caho. A couple of 2.5-3 kg esok (roho) followed, in amongst some smaller common carp, Julien's golden carp, and a couple of beautiful kois. When we were done we'd caught maybe 70 fish between us, all on float-fished bread flake.

Nong Bua Lamphu Fishing Park shows great promise. Ian has some great ideas and the future of this venue certainly is in good hands. Thanks again for a thoroughly pleasant day.

Had a great day's fishing at Nong Bua Lamphu Fishing Park recently, about 20 fish in total inc. Pla Cahoor up to 12 kg, 3 Amazon Redtails,2 Catla and a small Pla Nai. The park is well set out and maintained and Ian is on hand to advise on the best swims and methods. I think Ian has got the lake and the prices well placed between Thai owned fisheries that are very cheap but overstocked with Pla Sawai and other foreign owned fisheries that are beautiful with many species of huge fish but with a price to match.I recommend this fishery and will return soon!
