Chalong Fishing Park
A Family Affair
Chalong Fishing Park is a small, family run and inexpensive fresh water fishing lake. The sort of place you can go for your breakfast and stay the day without checking with the bank. Many of the local anglers consider themselves as part of the furniture and even us “salties” turn up pretty regularly.
Jez Wilson the owner/manager along with his wife …….. go out of their way to make everyone welcome around their well-stocked lake which is home to many exotic species many of which come in around 40kgs.
For those who are new to fishing “fresh” warm water, Jez is a keen and very knowledgeable angler who is always happy to give advice and share his knowledge of the lake and its inhabitants.
For non-fishing customers including young children entry is free of charge and there is even a small “kiddies” pool and hammocks for that afternoon siesta.
Chalong Fishing Park is all about affordable "Fun Fishing" - a family friendly activity where kids under 12 are half price when fishing with an adult.
Fishing here is around a third of the price of many of Phuket's fishing parks with arguably higher catch rates. There are 3 different packages: full day (up to 12 hours) half day ( up to 6 hours) and a 3 hour session designed for walk in customers, novices and customers with children.
There are 20 different species of fish and more being added all the time, with several very good sized fish over 40 KG.
There is a fully stocked bar and a restaurant serving Thai and Western dishes right next to the lake as well as a small pool and showers.
Located in Rawai, it is very easily accessed from nearby Chalong, Kata and Karon and is only 20 minutes from Patong.
