List of Fish by Location

The Fish in Animal Crossing: New Horizons can be found in three types of water: Sea, Rivers, and Ponds.

The exact area of the body of water they can be found in can sometimes differ, like the river mouths leading into the ocean and the rivers on top of cliffs, so make sure you're looking the right place with our location guides below!

How to Catch Fish

In order to catch fish, you will first need to craft or buy a Fishing Rod. After equipping the fishing rod, go to a body of water (sea, river, or pond) and find a fish shadow. Cast your pole by pressing A, and wait for the fish to bite. Once it bites your lure and pulls it underwater, press A again to catch the fish!

For an in-depth walkthrough on how to catch fish and become the best fisher your island has ever seen, check out the guide below!

This page has some blatantly wrong information. Nibble fish, for starters, is a tiny shadow, not small.
