The Fish Trap works essentially like any other animal trap. Once you complete building the Fish Trap, wait for some time for the trap to do it's trick, and you should find some fish trapped inside for you to collect. It is important to consider placing the trap where you can visibly see fish in the water in abundance. Furthermore, the Fish Trap will be more efficient in narrow streams that flow in one direction, so the fish can be trapped easily.

If you're having a hard time with the Fish Trap, there are a few other ways to catch fish easily. Firstly, you can craft a Spear, and then go into shallow water with fish.
