When my friends asked me where to fish near Udon Thani, I thought I would add my experiences to this site.
If anyone else has some good recommendations please add them
We have Thai fishing Parks and Farang Fishing Parks
The thai fishing parks seem to stock mainly stripped catfish and the farang parks stock a variety.
Saman fishing Park (Thai owned), It is stocked with mainly stripped catfish, good fun but very easy to catch, I saw fish upto about 12kg. It is so easy that after 3 hours I was bored because it did not pose a challenge. Lots of rubbish everywhere. conclusion good fun for maximum 3 hours.
Luckana fishing park (Farang owned) , It does not have too many fish but what it has is BIG fish and great for a days fishing if you are an experienced fisherman, it has a variety of thai fish including Thai redtails, Mekong catfish, Siamese carp, a good days fishing.
Nong bua Lamhu Fishing Park (farang owned), It is just like a piece of the English countryside, manicured grass and fishing salas for shade. It has a good stock of fish species, Siamese carp, amazon redtail catfish, Mekong catfish and others. I caught fish upto 14kg. It is good for the experienced angler and you are guaranteed to catch. It also has a second lake that is great for float fishing stocked with mainly fish upto 2kg but a few bigger ones.
