Fishing the river ping

Recommended Posts

I live in Chiang Mai and have started fishing the river ping, caught two catfish so far but only small ones, any ideas what else is in the river ping and how to catch something bigger ?.


thanks Andy

Hi Andy,


There is quite an array of fish in the river such as tilapia, various carp and others that I don't know the name of. The biggest fish I have seen come out was a Chinese carp which I guess was around 8kg because the guys that caught it took it straight to the fish restaurant across the road and got B800 for it. I prefer lake fishing so I'm not the best person to ask, but they caught the carp with bread. Worms and dead bait work well too. I've only had a couple of small catfish like you and I got a small grass carp once. 


Once I was fishing, I saw a couple of guys in a boat collecting a strange fruit that falls into the river. I called out to them and they said it is good bait for big fish. I'm sorry but I don't know the name of it but when I next see the mother in law I'll ask her and hopefully she will know.
