Mahseer Fishing in the Golden Triangle 6 days 5 nights

Fly fishing for Thai Mahseer in the golden triangle Northern Thailand

After the big success of our prevoius fishing expeditions in the Golden Triangle for mahseer species, we are now able to offer a fully guided experience of the most extreme lure fishing that Thailand can offer!

Thai mahseer fishing in Thailand Target species - Thai Mahseer (Tor tambroides) are known to be up to 25kg. Burmese trout fishing in Thailand Target species - Burmese trout (Raiamas guttatus) are a rare cat6ch and great fun on light tackle. Stracheyi mahseer fishing in Thailand Target species - Stracheyi mahseer (Neolissochilus stracheyi). Goonch fishing in Thailand Target species - The Goonch catfish.

On our first day, we will reach by four wheels pick-up truck the furthest fishable location upstream on the river, located at about 25 kms from the national park headquarters. Then every day we will travel to fish a different part of the river, staying at different camps for the night. We have a team of 4 rangers to take care of all the logistics for us. your Thai pro guides will be assisting and looking after anglers daily for the fishing part of the trip. The 4 rangers are old friends of us whom we know well. You’ll be in the best hands in hill tribes territory.

Each location at the river that we will fish for the 4 days is protected; fishing them is prohibited all year long. We pay both the authorities of the park and each village to get the authorization to fish them. They know our respect for nature and the fact we only practice catch and release.

Some of the biggest thai mahseer (tor tambroides) captured through the years were over 25 kilos (the current IGFA world record for that specie is only 12.5 kg). We previuosly had one well over 4.00 kilo caught on a metal spoon by one of our malaysian clients. That very kind of fishing is – the most exciting here in Thailand. Wild sceneries are breathtaking, that river is absolutely pristine, fish are numerous and for some have never seen a lure. Tough to find a better location for extreme lure fishing!
