In this Stardew Valley fish guide, we will tell you how to get all the fish in the game. We will state all their locations and times to catch all the fish in the game. And the rewards for capturing all the fish. Would you mind reading the first four paragraphs before skipping ahead? You may get confused because we will point out a few things that you probably need to know.

First, we go over a few quick tips if you’re struggling to catch fish efficiently. When you fish in general, your fishing bar gets more prominent when you level up your fishing skill.

Bobbers
Use certain bobbers for certain fish. Some bobbers can help you catch fish easier or give special rewards. Don’t give up. It takes practice. Just keep going at it, and it’ll get easier as you go.

Upgrading fishing rod
Upgrade your fishing rod as soon as possible. You can go to Willy to buy a better fishing rod at some point in the game. So go check and see if you can upgrade your fishing rod. It will help a lot.

Rain totem
To catch some fish, they require rain, and other fish need it to be winter. So if you have a rain totem, you can make it rain during winter, allowing you to catch that specific fish that requires it to rain and capture it during winter. For example, you can capture the Red snapper during summer, fall, or winter with a rain totem. So you can technically catch this fish in the winter. You’d had to use a rain totem to make it rain because it doesn’t naturally rain in winter. Also, there are some others fishing this game that I’m not like showing in this video.
