With all that in mind, we’ve been working across two Animal Crossing islands to bring you all the fish currently available across the north and south hemispheres. It’s worth noting that certain fish are only available in certain locations, at certain times during specific months, so you’ll need to check all patches of water. Here are the specific locales we’ve discovered so far:

  • River
  • River (Mouth)
  • River (Clifftop)
  • Pond
  • Pier
  • Sea

If you’re new to the series and are wondering how to fish in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, what you need to do is get a fishing rod, and then aim to drop your hook ahead of where the fish is facing. Then wait until the fish spots it. They will nose the hook, but wait until it pulls the float under the water with a satisfying plop. Then press A immediately to reel it in.

How to Catch Fish in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Catching fish in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is very much the same as previous games in the series, as you will firstly need to equip a Fishing Rod.

In order to obtain the fishing rod, the player can either craft one through DIY crafting or simply purchasing one from the shop in Resident Services.

Once you have your new fishing gear equipped, make your way towards the water and look for the small dark shadows of fish swimming in the nearby area. With the fish located, cast your rod towards the shadow and wait for the fish to hook on!
