Stardew Valley Fishing Guide, Location of all Fish and How to Catch Them

Today I am going to share with you how to get all the fish in Stardew Valley including the popular Sturgeon, other legendary fishes, all their locations, difficulty and the times to catch basically all the fish in the game, and also the rewards for catching all the fish pleases avoid skipping ahead or anything it might make you confused because there are few things that I will point out that you probably need to know. 

First, I’m going to go over a few quick tips if you are struggling with fishing. When you fish in general your fishing bar gets bigger when you actually level up your fishing skill, use certain bars for certain fish, some bars can really help you catch fish easier or give special rewards, don’t give up, it takes practice, just keep going at it and it will get easier as you go, and do well to upgrade your fishing rod, you can go to Willie and buy a better fishing rod at some point in the game so and go check to see if you can upgrade your fishing rod, it will really help.  

Again, some of the fish you will be trying to catch requires raining, and some of the other fishes also can be caught in winter, so if you have a rain totem, you can actually make it rain during winter, allowing you to catch that specific fish who requires it to be caught when it rain. So, for example, the red snapper can be caught during summer, fall, or winter with a raincoat on you can technically catch this fish in the winter, but you would have to use a rain totem to make it rain, because as we all know it doesn’t naturally rain in winter. 

I have another article showing you how to get some of the new legendary fish in Stardew Valley on my website, you are free to check that out later if you want, also in my table of content I will have named all the fishes, hitting the name of the fish you want, will allow you to jump directly to what fish you are looking for. Well you might as well call this Stardew Wiki because all the information are very detailed to guide you through catching any fish.
