Fishing in Par Lai Lake.
"Phuket's big fish venue".
Fishing Khao Lak is now pleased to offer this new
amazing freshwater destination in Phuket –
Par Lai Lake near Chalong.
Set amongst a backdrop of exotic tropical gardens, you can target a large variety
of tough fighting species that include Pacu, Striped Catfish, Giant Gourami,
Striped Snakehead, Tilapia, Indo–Pacific Tarpon and Rohu Carp.
Striped Catfish grow to record–beating sizes here, with specimens well in excess
of the current IGFA world record, regularly being caught.
Pacu (a Piranha look–alike) are very common in this lake
and are tremendous fighters that will test any anglers´ skill.
Fish up to 15 kg are present, but the average size is around 5–6 kg.
The equipment used is Shimano one piece rods, matched with
Shimano spinning– or Bait–runner reels.
These species can also be targeted with fly fishing equipment.
The most common fly fishing equipment used is a 7 – 8 weight rod
with a matching reel and an intermediate line with a 30 lb shock tippet.
You might think that this is a bit "over–kill" but,
you will have to take our word for it or be prepared to loose a lot of flies!
The most productive flies are fish imitations in green, or green/white with flash.
Please note that fly–fishing equipment is not provided
and you should therefore bring along your own equipment and flies.
Par Lai Lake has all the facilities needed to make it the perfect day out
for anglers as well as non–fishermen.
Facilities include: Restaurants, snack bar, toilets and even
an aquarium displaying some of the species found in the lake.

Total price per person:

for only 600 THB per person.
We are looking forward to seeing you, so until then,
