200lb Carp

A healthy stocking of Carp weighing up to 200lb

Thailand is the land of the giant fish and Carp are no exception. Thai Carp are river fish and need to be able to swim against the strong currents of the Mekong river, this characteristic makes them put up an incredible fight when they live in a lake. They are incredibly powerful fish and have been known to fight for up to 12 hours on rod and line. This is fishing in Thailand!

3 meter long Arapaima

One of the biggest freshwater species known to man

Arapaima are stocked in large numbers in the lake to around 150 kg in weight. Arapaima originate from the Amazon River and have been stocked in some fishing lakes in Thailand for some time now. Arapaima in this lake are some of the biggest in the world.

Chao Praya Catfish

One of the most aggressive of all catfish species

This is a predatory catfish which is a strong fighter and can be caught day and night on a large range of baits both live and dead fish and meat baits as well as artificial lures and flies.

Redtail Catfish

Insatiable appetite and incredibly powerful

The Redtail Catfish is a powerfully built and voracious predator that can be found in Thailand to weights exceeding 80Kg. It is an imported species that thrives in the lakes of Thailand, gaining weight rapidly, and also gaining a reputation as an excellent sport fish.

Alligator Gar

Elusive and prehistoric looking

The alligator gar is one strange looking fish. With a long alligator-like jaw lined with saw-like razor-sharp teeth and a long body covered in hard scales, the fish looks like it was something lost from the prehistoric era that just decided to stop evolving. Gloves should be worn when handling a large specimen as their scales can become quite abrasive and caution should be practiced since their snapping jaws can easily tear flesh.

Here is a fantistic video showing what kind of fishing to expect

See what our visitors have got to say about their time spent on the resort


I'm a keen angler and decided to try this place out for its fishing. WOW, what an experience.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the Jurassic team made us very welcome and catered for our every need, from our room to the food and of course the FISHING.

It truly was a DREAM come true for me, I can not recommend Jurassic mountain resort & fishing enough to any angler or to anyone wanting a beautiful stop away for a few days the views are amazing.

So I would like to thank the Jurassic team for this experience, but a special thank you to the gillies, George, Rick, & Mark can't thank you enough guys. You made my DREAM COME TRUE so THANK YOU.


I had been looking at a few fisheries near Bangkok but finally decided on Jurassic. I was very happy that I chose this one. The timeliness and attention to detail was outstanding. The driver was on time to pick me up.

As soon as I arrived I was greeted by friendly staff and fed breakfast. The food was delicious and quick to arrive. The gillies - George, Mark and Rik were outstanding as they all spoke perfect English, were extremely knowledgeable about how to fish the lake, how to handle the fish and tackle, and took care of me continuously. These guys are great!

The staff will serve your lunch or dinner directly to you if you like while fishing and the people on site are dynamic and friendly.

I caught many, many large fish both days!! If you come to Thailand and don't visit this place you are missing out, it is a one of a kind destination that I will never forget and can't wait to return to. Worth every penny, great value.


Me and my wife literally just arrived home after we spent 11 nights on our honeymoon.

What can I say... It is a fantastic place. Room was very clean and gets tidied every morning. Water in fridge, clean towels and great air con. The staff here are second to none, so friendly they get to know u all as well which is good they know ur name talk to you and do absolutely everything to ensure your stay is a pleasant one.

The gillies at the moment Mark, Rick and George are also brilliant lads and are on hand for all your fishing needs and will give you as little or as much help as u require from them.

Me and my wife left the boys a little tip and a bottle of bubbles to show our appreciation and I hope to see them all again sometime.

Taxis arranged as and when you need them, you literally dont have to lift a finger, the people here are so helpful.

Food and drink are reasonably priced and I thought was lovely. All in all we really enjoyed our stay here and HIGHLY RECOMMEND to anybody. Will soon be booking up again.
