Freshwater Fishing in Thailand, Srinakarin

Srinakarin Dam is one of the biggest dams located in the Kanchanaburi Province, Thailand.  Well known for it’s lush forest and green hills, it is also a place that can offer decent good fishing as Fred found out.

The water level is low since the raining season has been late this year. Finding the fish will be a real challenge. Fred’s plan is to fish small crank baits along the rocky drop off.



Good start when a Giant Snakehead took a liking for the Rapala Shad Dancer 5cm in Hot Tiger colour.



Casting at all the likely spots produced no fish and Fred was blessed to chance upon a river that holds fish.

Refusing to give up on the idea that the rocky drop off holds no fish, Fred downsized the lure to a 4 cm Shad Dancer in Fire Tiger colour and got rewarded with a nice Hampala immediately.



The change of lure and the colour seemed to work wonders as another nice size Hampala is caught



Towards the end of the trip, when casting the same lure along a rocky outcrop, Fred had a good take and a nice Giant Snakehead was landed on his BFS setup.
