FRESH WATER FISHING

Malaysia's rivers and lakes, set amidst lush tropical rainforest, deliver fishing experiences.

 

The two massive man-made lakes of Kenyir, covering a surface area of around 380 sq. km and Temenggor at around 150 sq. km, both developed for the creation of hydroelectric power, provide numerous fishing challenges. King of these waters is the Giant Snakehead, a powerful and ferocious predator. Although Malaysia boasts over 250 species of freshwater fish, it is only a handful that are of interest to the angler.

 

The Royal Belum Forest reserve in the part of Temenggor has excellent, but remote fishing to challenge the hardiest of anglers.  A few houseboats ply the man-made lakes and provide simple but relaxing accommodation and fishing.  Other basic accommodation is available upriver, deep in the jungle. Camping trips can be arranged and all supply small boats with outboard engines for anglers and sightseers alike. The virgin jungle backdrop makes for excellent pictures, totally at one with nature.

 

If you are lucky, sharp-eyed and really quiet, there is a generosity of wildlife to be seen in Malaysia's forests.  Monkeys, wild pig, elephant, deer and Tapir are the most seen mammals. Tigers also inhabit the forests of the peninsula, though they are rarely encountered.  Bird species from the fish hunting eagle to hornbills, humming birds and jungle fowl can be spotted regularly.

 
 

FLORA, FAUNA & FISHING

 

 

The natural lakes of Chini and Bera are both primarily shallow swampy lakes and classified as wetland areas. Bera is designated a special conservation area under the 1971 Ramsar International Treaty on Wetland Conservation. This virtually undisturbed habitat ensures not only a memorable angling experience but also a unique view of indigenous tropical wetland flora and fauna. Situated in the 130 million-year old rainforest of Taman Negara, Malaysia's first national park, a 6km stretch of river has been designated to become a self-sustaining eco-tourism model. Fishing for the Red Mahseer is purely catch and release in this sanctuary and only a limited number of anglers are allowed at any one time. The high Endau river, located in the Endau Rompin Park on the Johor-Pahang border is perhaps one of the most beautiful rivers in the country.  Fishing this river is challenging to say the least, and locating your quarry can be a difficult task.
