Fishing in Stardew Valley is a lucrative skill that can earn you money, EXP, and even the good favour of your fellow villagers. Most fish can be caught with a fishing pole, though certain critters can only be snagged by using a crab pot. With a huge selection to catch, including catfish, walleye, red snapper, largemouth bass, sturgeon, tiger trout, and eels across multiple ponds, you may need a little help working out which ones are worth your time – and that’s where we come in.
We’ve pulled together this Stardew Valley fish guide to teach you everything you need to know about the profession and the different creatures you can grab. We’ve gone into detail about every fish, how to get a Stardew Valley fish pond, all of the Stardew Valley fish bundles to help fix the fish tank in the Community Centre, and whether you should pick the Fisher or Trapper path. Make the most of your time in the village, and maybe steal a couple of hearts with these prime catches.
If you find this guide useful, we have plenty more Stardew Valley content, including a Stardew Valley Lewis guide, and a Stardew Valley Sebastian guide. We also have a list of the best Switch multiplayer games or the best mobile two-player games if you’re looking for something new to play.
How to fish in Stardew Valley and Stardew Valley Fishing tips
In Stardew Valley, fishing is played out through a mini game. When a fish is hooked, a meter will appear where a fish icon moves up and down, and you must control a green bar and keep it over the fish. When the green bar is over the fish, the catch meter will raise, and when the fish leaves the bar, the catch meter will drop. If the catch meter fills to the top, your catch will be successful, but if it drops all the way to the bottom, the fish will get away.
Fish come in multiple tiers, classified as different levels of ‘quality’. These tiers are normal, silver, gold, and iridium. Each tier has a different sell price, with normal being the lowest and iridium being the highest.
There are four types of fishing pole – training rod, bamboo pole, fiberglass rod, and iridium rod. Training rods are easier to use, but can only catch common fish, fiberglass rods are able to use bait, and iridium rods are able to use bait and tackle. If you have an iridium rod and are over level six, you can purchase and equip a lead bobber, which will stop the fish from bobbing in the minigame and make it easier to catch. If you manage to keep the fish within the green bar throughout the entirety of the minigame, you will secure a perfect catch, which raises the quality of the fish up one tier.
It is impossible to tell the exact specimen and stats until the fish is caught, however, certain behaviours and conditions, such as the time of day or the season, can help you guess what you might have hooked. Also, a legendary fish will always show up with a little crown on the icon, so you know you’ve snagged a worthy catch!
If you have the fisher profession you gain an additional 25% cash for each catch, and if you have the angler profession it goes up to 50%, but for the purposes of this guide we have included the base price for normal, silver, gold, and iridium catches below.
Fish in Stardew Valley also have different behaviour patterns – there are five in total.
- Mixed – they move in a basic pattern
- Smooth – they move with a steady, slower pattern
- Sinker – they move with a faster downwards acceleration
- Floater – they move with a faster upwards acceleration
- Dart – they move with a random pattern, and are more difficult to predict and catch

Legendary Stardew Valley fish
Legendary fish are tough catches that can only be found in specific places. They are distinguished by the little crown that appears on the fish icon in the fishing mini-game, and once they have been caught once, they will not appear on the same save file again. Due to their intense difficulty, don’t be surprised if they take quite a few attempts to snag.
|Crimsonfish||1,500g, 1,875g, 2,250g, 3,000g||east pier on the beach – any time during the summer|
|Angler||900g, 1,125g, 1,350g, 1,800g||north of jojamart on the wooden plank bridge – any time during the fall|

Legendary Stardew Valley fish II
Legendary fish II can be caught during Mr. Qi’s quest ‘Extended Family’. They are the younger generation of the original legendary fish, but can only be caught while this quest is active.
|Son of Crimsonfish||1,500g, 1,875g, 2,250g, 3,000g||east pier on the beach – any time during the summer|

Crab pot Stardew Valley fish
Some critters can be caught by a crab pot or foraged on the beach – and all of these can be used in the crab pot bundle. While fish foraged on the beach can be normal, silver, gold, or iridium quality, those caught in a crab pot will always be normal quality.
|Clam||50g, 62g, 75g, 100g||ocean|
|Cockle||50g, 62g, 75g, 100g||ocean|
|Mussel||30g, 37g, 54g, 60g||ocean|
|Oyster||40g, 50g, 60g, 80g||ocean|
Other Stardew Valley catchables
There are also a few items you can catch while fishing that don’t count as junk, but aren’t quite fish either! You will get some EXP for each of these, and can use them in certain recipes, so don’t be too sad if you reel one of them in.
|Seaweed||20g, 25g, 30g, 40g||found in the ocean via fishing or the beach by foraging|
|Green algae||15g||can be found everywhere but the farm pond of the standard farm|
|White algae||25g||mines, sewers, mutant bug lair, witch’s swamp|
Stardew Valley Fish Pond
The fish pond is a farm building that you can buy from Robin at the Carpenter’s shop in the mountains. It costs 5,000g, 200 stone, five seaweed, and five green algae, takes two days to make, and will take up a 5×5 square. The fish pond can raise most fish – even those from the Night Market and crab pots (except clams), though legendary fish aren’t allowed.
Each pond can only hold one type of fish at a time, and the standard capacity to start with is three fish. Certain rare fish like blobfish, ghostfish, woodskips etc are limited to one per pond, whereas tiger trout, sea urchins, and coral have an initial capacity of ten. Fish kept in the fish pond produce roe and random items, and can produce up to their max limit (except tiger trout, which can’t reproduce).
You can harvest the fish from your pond by casting your fishing pole. They will always be of regular quality, even if you threw in a higher quality initially, so keep that in mind! Energy is consumed when casting your line, but fish are caught instantly from the pond without the need for a minigame, no bait is consumed, and your tackle isn’t affected.
Stardew Valley Fish bundles – how to fix the fish tank
If you’re hoping to complete the Community Centre bundles, you’ll of course, need to gather the fish bundles. The fish tank in the Community Centre requires six fish bundles to be completed, after which the glittering boulder to the left of the mine entrance will be removed. This will lead Willy to giving you a copper pan that can be used to collect ore and other items from water, whenever glittering patches appear.
We’ve listed all the bundles below, and you can look at the chart above to see when and where you can snag these fishy friends.
Stardew Valley river fish bundle
- Tiger trout
Reward: 30 bait
Stardew Valley lake fish bundle
- Largemouth bass
Reward: one dressed spinner
Ocean fish bundle
- Red snapper
Reward: five warp totem: beach
Stardew Valley night fishing bundle
Reward: one small glow ring
Stardew Valley Crab pot bundle
Reward: three crab pot
Stardew Valley specialty fish bundle
Reward: five dish o’ the sea
Remember, you can look at your bundles and how many items you’ve submitted at any point from the inventory page. Also, items in your inventory that are needed for bundles will pulse gently, so keep an eye out for that before selling them all off.
Stardew Valley fishing professions – fisher or trapper?
As with all professions in Stardew Valley, leveling them up allows you to access certain proficiencies. For fishing, you can either become a fisher or a trapper, which decides what perks you get access to later down the line. At level ten, you will have a choice between two perks. Here’s what you get for each one.
|Fisher||Five||Increases sell price for all fish, including crab pot fish, by 25%|
|Angler||Ten||Increases sell price for all fish by 50%|
|Pirate||Ten||Chance to find treasure when fishing is doubled|
|Trapper||Five||Reduced requirements to make crab pots|
|Mariner||Ten||Crab pots never catch trash|
|Luremaster||Ten||Crab pots no longer need to be baited|
Most perks won’t make a massive difference by late game, but can offer a nice boost in the early stages. The fisher/angler path is always a good choice, as raking in that extra cash is always welcome. Going with fisher/pirate can also really help your museum collections. However, if you’re a big fan of just walking to the shore and harvesting all your crab pot spoils, the trapper/mariner path has its bonuses – though luremaster is a little pointless, as bait is super cheap, and can be made from bug meat which is plentiful in the early levels of the mines.
We usually choose fisher/angler, but you do you!
If you're looking to make a strong profit from fish ponds, then your fish of choice should be the Lava Eel. These volcanic eels may be the second hardest fish to catch, just under the legendary fish, and can only be found on the 100th floor of The Mines, but they are most definitely worth the trouble.
Reaching a skill level of 15 is possible with a combination of food, Qi Seasoning and/or a Fishing Pole enchanted with the Master enchant. The actual casting distance will be a fraction of the maximum distance, based on the fullness of the mini-game casting meter.
Legend might be the most rarest fish and also most expensive, if you catch this and decide to sell it off you can get maximum of 15.000g which makes this fish the most expensive item in Stardew Valley with a single sell price.
EVERYTHING You Need to Know About FISH PONDS - YouTube
Octopus – Stardew Valley Fish Pond. Octopus is not the most profitable fish to place into a fish pond, but once you've populated an Octopus pond, they provide you with a steady income of Omni-Geodes, which can be used to produce other items.
One profitable, long-term thing to do with super cucumbers are to place them in a fish pond. This is because they produce several profitable items depending on the capacity of the farm. It starts out with roe at a population of 1, and iridium ore and amethyst at a population of 9.
Being an angler makes your fish be 50% more valuable, and the pirate options gives you an opportunity to find more treasure. Many players agree that the Stardew pirate option is much more interesting! The chance of finding treasure is always exciting, so of course many will choose this.
Robin's lost axe can be found to the southeast of Marnie's ranch, a bit north of the sewer's entrance. However, you'll need to accept the quest before the axe actually appears on the screen. When you wake up on the 11th day of Spring on the first year, check your mail.
The Iridium Krobus is a decorative piece of furniture that can be obtained by fishing in the ocean from the southernmost point of Cindersap Forest near the entrance to The Sewers. A minimum effective Fishing level of 15 is required to achieve the long cast distance required to reach the ocean from Cindersap Forest.
When place in the fish pond, Rainbow Trout have a chance to produce Rainbow Shells and Prismatic Shards. Prismatic Shards are a rare and valuable item in Stardew Valley. Although you will need more than nine fish in your pond and only have an extremely slim chance of getting the shard, it's still worth it.
The fish spawn frequency is species dependent, and ranges from 1 to 5 days for most fish (the one exception is Tiger Trout, which does not reproduce). More expensive fish spawn more slowly. Fish will reproduce even if only one fish is present in the pond.
If you have selected the Rancher profession, Ostrich Eggs of Iridium quality placed in the Shipping Bin will make you 1440 gold, making it the most profitable Animal Product in Stardew Valley.
Sell them! The price of this fish can vary a lot depending on their quality, on your fishing profession, and more things. For example, a very good legend fish can be sold for 10 thousand gold coins! Of course, others might be sold for maybe 1.5 thousand gold coins, but it's still a decent price.

Fishing ponds can be very lucrative in Stardew Valley. Here are the best fish you can put in your fish ponds.
There are dozens of fish in the game, so it can be hard to decide which fish should be placed in the pond.. Fish ponds are small, rectangular ponds where you can raise fish.. Every fish can be placed inside one of these ponds, but depending on the fish, you will receive different items.. The price of unprocessed Roe depends on the fish, but overall, roe sells for the base price of the fish divided by two, plus 30.. You can place between one and three fish in a pond, and the fish will eventually start multiplying.. This may sound silly, but occasionally, the fish pond will display an item that the fish want.. Remember, fish can be fished out of the pond.. With a fish pond holding at least nine Spook Fish, you will have a .3 percent chance to get a treasure chest..

This Stardew Valley Fish Pond Guide will tell you all about which fish are the best for using in the Stardew Valley Fish Pond and why. All top 5 fish revealed.
This Stardew Valley Fish Pond Guide will tell you all about which fish are the best for using in the Stardew Valley Fish Pond and why.. In Stardew Valley Fish Ponds can hold a variety of fish that produce items for your to sell as well as additional fish that can be used to populate other fish ponds or sold for additional profit.. In this Stardew Valley Fish Pond Guide, I’ll tell you what the top 5 best fish are for your fish pond and why so you can get started making fish ponds a lucrative part of your farm right away.. Octopus is not the most profitable fish to place into a fish pond, but once you’ve populated an Octopus pond, they provide you with a steady income of Omni-Geodes, which can be used to produce other items.. With a full pond, Sturgeons will leave 1-2 Roe on a daily basis, making them one of the most outright profitable fish pond options available.. Sturgeon can be caught at the Mountain Lake any time during Summer and Winter, which means you can set up your Sturgeon Stardew Valley Fish Pond as early as the first Summer.. If you want to make money with your Stardew Valley fish pond, it’s hard to go wrong filling one or several of them with Lava Eels.. Unlike Sturgeon, you’re safe selling off your 10th Lava Eel every time it populates for a little extra income, because you only need 9 Lava Eels to get access to its best drops.. Not only can it leave behind 2-3 very profitable Lava Eel Roe that you can easily turn into Aged Roe and sell for a pretty penny, it can also leave behind Spicy Eel, which is arguably the best food in the game since it increases your speed.. Catching a Lava Eel to get your Stardew Valley Fish Pond going can be kind of a chore..
