Paifon is currently the fastest fishing lake in Pattaya. Great if you want to catch a lot of small fish quickly. If you would like to take your catch home, put it in one of the keep nets, if it’s 1kg or less it’s free. Last time I visited they were re-stocking with 700-800kg of tilapia. Catching them it a bit of a black art, try a tilapia mix and throw in some ground bait, also try bread, shrimp, worms or maggots all on a size 3 – 7 hook.
Approximately 1km from Nern Plab Wan along soi 24 you will come to the junction in the picture below, follow the road indicated by the arrow (and keep right) for another 150m to the park. There is now a new sign indicating the way from Nern Plab Wan soi 24. The pond is also accessible from Khao Noi soi 9.
