Stardew Valley Fishing Guide 2021

Welcome to the 2021 updated Stardew Valley Fishing Guide, which does also cover an overview of all Stardew Valley fish prices! Fishing is a mini game in Stardew Valley where you must keep an icon of a fish in a green box for a certain amount of time. Sounds easy, right? Well there’s a catch, the fish moves up and down rapidly making it much harder to track where the fish is in the bar.

If you complete the challenge of keeping the fish in the box, you will be rewarded with a certain fish based on fishing location, season, weather and time. The tenacity of the fish will determine the quality of the fish. Higher quality (more expensive) fish will be much harder to catch compared to your average sardine.

Certain fish can only be caught in specific areas, and some fish can only be caught at a specific time of day. The list below covers all the different fish in Stardew Valley. Click on each fish to find the stardew valley fishing guide and view additional information such as how much the fish are worth, location, time and more!
