FISHING AT KHAO LAEM DAM
The cliff-hanging and adrenaline rushing topwater bites are what every angler dreams for when chasing Snakehead at the famous Khao Laem Dam of the Kanchanaburi province.
Giant Snakehead and other various native predatory species use the sunken forests and submerged root systems to ambush any prey that dares to wander too close.
Giant Snakehead and Jungle Perch are highly aggressive hunters, hitting any topwater lure that crosses their path. During the breeding season Giant Snakeheads are very protective of their young and will fend off any intruders, this is where sight fishing for these predators should be on every avid anglers to-do list.
Anglers will be picked-up at Suvarnabhumi airport and then transported to Khao Laem Dam in an air-conditioned vehicle through some of Thailand’s most scenic and rural scenery before arriving at your destination approximately four hours after departure.
Khao Laem Dam is a picturesque location nestled in the highlands of Thailand's tropical rain forest. Relax and immerse yourself in what KLD has to offer whilst chasing one of the most aggressive freshwater fish in the world... THE GIANT SNAKEHEAD!
FISHING AT ARAPAMIMA POND
An extremely challenging fish to catch, the Arapaima is one of the most sought-after freshwater fish. Reaching lengths of over two meters, these unusual creatures have built up a wealth of myths and legends around them. Unusually, they need to come to the surface of the water to breathe air.
Arapaima fishing in the pond is lure only and has become a major tourist attraction. It's a user-friendly way of coming close and personal to this freshwater giant.
