Borsang Fishing Park is a beautiful rustic Thai style fishing lake in Chiang Mai Thailand. Fishing at Borsang Fishing Park is fishing all year round but this lake should be your first choice during the cool winter season (December- February) and if you only have time for a day or a half day fishing trip.

TARGET SPECIES: Giant Mekong catfish (Pla buek) 5kg -40kg (11lb - 88lb), Striped catfish (Pla Sawai) 5kg - 25kg (11lb - 55lb) and Big wai (cross breed mekong catfish and striped catfish) These are the main targets and you will be deeply impressed by the power of these furious fighting species. The Giant Mekong catfish is well known in Thailand as a brute and a tackle destroyer.

FISHING METHODS: Fishing here is done with carprods,3-3,5 lbs testcurve, and big reels spooled with 30-40 lbs mono filament.
