High on every angler's bucket list is the mighty Arapaima and it is perhaps the most sought after fish for anglers visiting Thailand. Amazon BKK offers the best chance of catching one if you are able to fish with lures. The density of the amount of Arapaima is just mind boggling and you are bound to get one. However, the lake is quite difficult to fish and the catch rate may not be as high. Common species that are caught on a daily basis includes: Arapaima, Amazon Redtail Catfish, Alligator Gar, Chaopraya Catfish and Giant Snakehead. Other known catches but more rare includes Pacu, Wallago Leeri, Asian Redtail Catfish, Atlantic Tarpon and Giant Freshwater Stingray.
Fishing at this lake is moderately hard which requires a somewhat advance casting and lure presentation skills.
