Hanoi Lake – Get Fish Guaranteed – 1Day

Hanoi Lake is an amazing place and with all the different species of fish that live there, we thought it was time to offer them to you. We have access to the one and only Hanoi Lake, which offers anglers the chance to do battle with such a fish as Catfish and the famous Common Carp that grow to gigantic sizes. This is truly the way to see Hanoi. For those of you who have not yet heard about this lake, it is located 20 minutes drive from Hanoi center. The water is around 1/2 acres with grass banks all round, which offers awesome fishing for numerous Viet native and non-native predator species, either by lure or fly fishing. A big population of Catfish up to 40 kg inhabits the lake.

Ever dreamt of doing battle with one of the hardest fighting freshwater beast on the planet? Well, now is your chance, as we are offering Cat-fishing at its best. Imagine standing on the side of a lake holding on to a very angry Catfish, as it tries to get back to its hole. As you can imagine, it is an experience not to miss!

The Common Carp in the Hanoi Lake grow to enormous sizes and the area we fish hold beasts over the magic 60lb mark along with many 40lb Catfish. With multiple catches daily, this truly is the home to some of the finest freshwater fishing in the world. Our guides will take great care of you whilst fishing this impressive lake, making your day as enjoyable as possible. They are willing for you to do everything or as little as you wish and will make your experience as full-on as they can.
