How to get Golden Koi in Genshin Impact

Learn where to find this dragon of a fish.

After acquiring the fishing pole in Genshin Impact, you'll be able to start collecting all types of rare fish. To obtain the Golden Koi, you'll first need to make sure you have the right bait as well as the best Fishing Points to find these beautiful creatures.

Completing the Exploding Population world quest will automatically give you various types of bait, including the one you'll need to snag Golden Koi: Fake Fly Bait (the one that looks like a fluffy purple feather). If you've run out of this bait, you can also craft it at any Crafting Bench using one Sakura Bloom and one Horsetail.
