How to fish in stardew Valley?

Before we get to the best locations for fishing in Stardew Valley, many of us could really benefit from a reminder of the rules that help to catch some good fish all the time (especially if you are a beginner or haven’t used good bait yet)! Fish can be very useful for many reasons (for example, Stardew Valley fish bundles being just one of them), so note some things down to learn everything properly!

The main thing you will have to do is press the action button once you are in the best fishing spots in Stardew Valley. Once that is done, you will notice that your character is trying to catch a fish! That’s when a meter will appear (the fuller the bar is, the further you will throw the line). Once you like your fishing spot, just throw the line as far as you want.

It shouldn’t take you longer than 5-10 seconds before you get a hit. Once that happens, just play the mini fishing game and keep the fish in the green space of the bar to catch it!

Now, let’s get to the main part of this guide! What are the best fishing spots in Stardew Valley? While some things depend on your luck and patience, knowing a good spot can’t hurt!

The Best Stardew Valley Fishing Spots

Below you will find some of our favourite suggestions when it comes to fishing spots in Stardew Valley:

Near Jodi’s House

As you can probably imagine, if our fishing friend Willy chooses some location, then you know that it’s a good spot!

One of the most common places where you will see Willy fishing is right by Jodi’s house (below it). You can definitely learn a lot from this Stardew character!

Of course, this is also one of the best fishing spots in Stardew Valley if you need more river fish (for example, for the community fish bundle).

Next to Willy’s Fishing Shop

There will always be some great fish next to the Fishing Shop! Oh, the irony.

Basically, if you are after some high-quality fish, then just go to the eastern part of the bridge and start fishing in that spot! This is one of the first places where players start their fishing journey, and that happens for a good reason!

Near Leah’s house

Are you trying to become great friends with Leah (or maybe even choose her as your favourite Stardew Valley spouse)? Well, you’re in luck because her place is right next to a great fishing spot in the game.

A big part of the Stardew community agrees that this is one of the best fishing locations in Stardew Valley, so you won’t be disappointed! The water there is deep enough to have really interesting types of fish, so definitely try this spot if you’re not a big fan of the other locations.

Pier on the beach

Once you rebuild the bridge, definitely head down to the eastern part of the beach and try to fish there!

What makes this such a great location? First of all, this is where you can catch the legendary fish! Also, the deep waters can be very beneficial when you’re trying to catch some great fish without any issues.

Fun fact, some players are saying that you should throw the line down or to the left to improve the quality of the fish that you catch there!
