The beautiful Gillhams fishing lake resort is located in the stunning area of Krabi Southern Thailand and is surrounded by limescale Karsts which are covered in a protected tropical rain forest. The resort can cater for single anglers, pairs, groups and we can also arrange full lake exclusivity. All tackle is provided and a reasonable amount of bait will be provided each day. Breakfast is also included which can be eaten in the restaurant or delivered directly to your swim so you do not lose any fishing time.

Gillhams provide English speaking fishing guides. They work one guide between four anglers and will assist all anglers to the level required. They are on the lake every day, including on their days off. The guide’s knowledge of the lake and the fish is second to none.
