picuda dorado

The Picuda is a South American freshwater fish species which has recently been imported to Thailand and stocked into some of Thailand’s commercial fishing lakes and ponds.  The Picuda Dorado is a popular sports fish in its native range of Columbia in the Magdalena basin and its various other tributaries and neighbouring rivers which has been reported to reach lengths of 80 cm’s with weights approaching 5kg’s.
This predatory freshwater fish species subsists on a diet of small fishes and aquatic insects which it hunts in the tropical waters that it inhabits and is a popular sportfish with both lure fishing and fly fishing enthusiasts which characteristically throws itself from the water in acrobatic attempts to throw the hook.
Relatively small sized Picuda have recently been imported to Thailand and stocked into several of Thailand’s commercial fishing lakes and ponds where it is now possible to fish for them for fly fishing and lure fishing enthusiasts
