Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise) - Fishing Guide: How to Fish Banner

This is a comprehensive guide on fishing in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise). Read on to learn how to fish, the rare fish you can catch, all fishing spots, and more!

How to Fish

① Approach the Pond

Once you are close to the natural fishing pond, a symbol will pop up close to your head, accompanied by the word Fish. This symbol means that you can start fishing from the spot you are standing on.

② Aim and Release

Your HUD will change to an overview of the pond. From there, you can start choosing which fish you will be going for. You can adjust where to cast the line as well as move the camera around. Once it's cast, you can't move the bait anymore, but you can still adjust your camera angle.

③ Wait Patiently

Wait for the fish to come for the bait. You can see when the fish is biting when the water above it is disturbed. That means that one of the fish is near your bobber and is taking the bait.

④ Reel Them In!

Once the fish bites, the bait will sink, and your controller will vibrate while the fish is thrashing. This is your cue to reel it in with the inputs below. You don't need to tap several times, as the animation will proceed once you press the button.

Bring Dung Bombs

Dung Bombs are invaluable, as getting hit by attacks interrupts your fishing time! Throw these at large monsters to make them leave the area so you can fish without distractions.

Area 13's fishing spot can be reached by following our guide to the 9th Relic Record by going through a mineshaft. Alternatively, you can use Wirebugs to enter the hollowed-out tree stump by the lake with Thornytoads.

The Citadel is also notable for having every fish in the game. If you haven't obtained the Deft-hand Rod award in the base game, this locale is a good place to complete it.
