Genshin Impact Ultimate Fishing Guide

Fishing in Genshin Impact is a permanent feature introduced in the 2.1 version of the game. There are several fishing spots all around Teyvyat where players can explore and go for a quick fishing session. Players can use rods and baits to catch the fish.

Fish can be traded for rewards by the players after catching them. These trades can be done by visiting the fishing association of each region. These fishing associations can be found in the coastal areas around each of the regions.

However, in order to unlock the fishing feature, players must first have the Serenitea Pot unlocked. After unlocking this, players need to finish the “Exploding Population” quest. Completing this quest will unlock the fishing and crafting baits feature.

In this article, we will provide you with a detailed guide to all the fishing associations around Teyvyat, tips to fish, and other things.

How to catch fish in Genshin Impact

Catching fish in Genshin Impact is a relatively easy task if you get used to it once. Before going fishing, players must first go to a fishing spot. They must select the correct bait depending on the location they went for fishing or the fish that they want to catch.

After spotting a fish in the location, players must hold the cast button to hold and aim the fishing rod and release the button to throw the bait. After throwing the bait, they must wait for the fish to bite before doing anything.

Once the fish is caught in the hook, press the raise hook button immediately before the fish escapes away. After raising the hook, the fish will try to escape. Players must keep the yellow tension zone in the screen in the box by holding and releasing the fish button. Once the fishing meter is complete, players can successfully catch the fish.

Tips to catch fishes in Genshin Impact

  • Don’t make noise around the fishing locations.
  • Make sure you don’t alert the fish before you start fishing.
  • Choose the right fishing rod and bait.
  • Learn how to release the hook in the perfect zone.
  • Learn to control the tension properly.
