I have gone fishing multiple times to a place called Bo Sang it is a fishing park and it has HUGE Mekong Catfish in the 50lb UP range and there are some monsters in there you will need strong tackele like a beachrod, I also went to the resevoir and while I saw loads surfacing I was not equipped well enough to catch them.

I stay in Chiang Mai from November to April. I fish all over northern part of Thailand. The biggest problem for foreigners is not having the right connections with the locals who DO fish. It's easy enough at the fishing parks like Bosan or Dream park, but much more difficult when fishing the big reservoirs. First, you need a boat, and secondly you need a connection with a Thai who has local knowledge of where to fish that reservoir... even if you know how to fish for the local species such as Jungle Perch and Giant snakeheads. I'm always on Thaivisa and when I get back to Thailand in November I'd be willing to pass on a few connections I know. At this time I don't want to promote something that I can't back up.

Agreed, It looks like some sort of bottom feeder. I have never seen anything like it even in my Asian species list.

Looks like the Oxydorus Niger or the Ripsaw Catfish aka Plated Catfish

http://www.seriouslyfish.com/profile.php?genus=Oxydoras&species=niger&id=630

Your spot on Quicksilva...Teak Tree Lake has some other species seldom seen too, like Goonch and Salween Catfish, both species capable of reaching

large sizes 50kg plus. Theres also Dorado from Argentina, not sure if they will have survided the onslaught from predators in the lake though :(
