Catch rates have been really high lately and we are finding that customers are going through a lot of “Luum” (ground bait). It goes without saying that the harder you fish and the more fish you catch, the more bait you will use and so we have made some changes to the amount of bait that we supply free of charge and also the amount we charge for additional bait. We will still continue to supply boilie and pop up hook baits for the non-predators and a fair amount of chicken/fish baits for the predators. A set amount of “Luum” (ground bait) will also be included in the initial fishing price with additional baits available at very reasonable costs as shown in the information sheet attached. Customers are also welcome to bring their own baits and bread can be used to “bulk up” the ground bait.
Our aim has always been to supply good fishing at affordable rates and we have slashed our rates over the last year. Those who follow our posts or have fished here before will see that the changes made are beneficial to the customer and thanks for your understanding.

A Quiet Weekend But...MORNING WORLD..... A quiet weekend but a couple of happy customers yesterday. Brit ex pats, Lin and her lad Josh joined us again for the morning and some nice fish. Another slightly older Brit also called Josh had contacted e the previous day and...
I have many years experience of fishing but if I went to a new venue, particularly in another country with different fish species, the first thing I would do would be to seek advice from locals and those “in the know” as no two places fish the same.
The guides and myself are here and fish every day so it goes without saying that we have the advantage over someone here for the first time. We are a venue for fun fishing and therefore we probably get more non-anglers than experienced anglers and that is why we are here to help. It is of course up to the individual but if you take our advice you will catch more fish.
We have had several customers recently who have ignored what we have told them and then asked why they are not catching as much as the guy opposite. The answer is simple, they have not listened to our advice and one example of this is when we fish for the predators more often than not we fish close to the water hyacinth beds just a meter or two out, we advise the customers of this but they seem hell-bent on casting as far as they can even though they have witnessed us and other customers catching fish close in. We appreciate that often there is a language barrier but vision is not affected by this.
FISH DO NOT FEED CONSTANTLY with many many factors affecting their behaviour and that is why we try to advise that a 3 hour package can be more challenging particularly at the hottest times of the day. If a customer catches say 20 fish in a ten hour session which is common, that does not necessarily mean that 6 fish will be caught in a 3 hour session. Fishing over a longer period with accurate casting and feeding will draw the fish to one spot (swim) and therefore result in more bites while inaccurate casting with little or no feeding is a lottery.
We genuinely want all our customers to catch as much as possible so please helps us to help you enjoy some “FUN FISHIN”!……….?????????

We want to help you catch fish
We want our customers to catch fish and have an enjoyable day. It is what our business is all about. Myself, the staff and the guides, as their title suggests, are here to “guide”. To enable us to do this the customers need to listen and take advice from the guides. They know the water & the fish. Accurate casting & patience are the key factors in any fishing. Constantly winding a newly baited rig just means that the fish have not had time to get to the bait. Holding the rod in your hand will move the bait and spook the fish. Over tightening the clutch on the reel will result in fish being lost. Casting into other peoples areas because you have seen them just catch a fish will upset everyone. They caught because they listened! This is not directed at anyone in particular nor is it a rant but please help us to help you.
Thanks for Reading & Listening

We had a fantastic day of fishing and found Jez and the guides incredibly helpful.
My partner is a keen fisher but it was my first time and the team made me feel at ease and I caught some catfish and had a very enjoyable day. We were both very impressed and would 100% recommend for anyone to come here.
Thanks for a great day!

My name is Shorty, I’m from Jindabyne Australia. I just got home from a trip to Phuket Thailand and the highlight of the trip was a fly fishing session at Chalong fishing park. Jez the owner/ operator was an absolute champion, he couldn’t have been more helpful and generous. Not only with his time rigging up the younger lads rods, but also generous with his ample knowledge of the specific species and just fishing in general.
He informed me that I was the first to catch a Redfin on fly which I was pretty stoked with.
So big thanks to Jez and all the crew @ Chalong fishing park, I’ll recommend a days fishing there to all the crew back home and to anyone wanting a great day on holidays.
A big thanks from Shorty, Tim, Grant, and Hunter.

We went to Chalong Fishing Park, my partner fished and I just enjoyed the experience. Jez the boss was great back of house and makes a mean full English breakfast. My partner’s 2 guide’s were amazing big shout out to Boy. We went at the hottest part of the day and he caught 3 in the first 30 mins he only had the 3 hour package and caught 7 in total we would recommend this place highly. Thanx again guys

We absolutely loved our time here. Jez & all the staff were friendly & accomodating.
My husband & 2 sons (19 & 10) fished for 3 hours, my daughter (14) & I were able to come along and watch for free, we enjoyed the pool, food & drinks while we waited.
This is great for families & even people who aren’t normally into fishing.
The guides are great and hard working, they will do more or less depending on what you want them to do.
