In Stardew Valley, some fishing spots are better than others, and in this guide, we will show you the best ones in the game. 

All the best fishing spots in Stardew Valley

There are a ton of fishing spots in Stardew Valley, and a lot of them are locked off to specific events or in areas, so in this guide, we are only going to be covering the immediate areas both starting and veterans have access to. That said, here are the best spots to fish in Stardew Valley.

The Beach: Western Pier Large Rock

The beach is home to several high-quality spots to fish and is one of the best places to fish in the summer to get super cucumbers. 

With this in mind, the first best spot to fish at the beach is the western pier rock; fishing here will give the best chances to gain the highest tier fish in this area.

The Beach: Eastern Pier 

This area is locked off until you repair the bridge that leads to it; after that, you will be able to fish in the location shown below.

The Beach: Where the River connects

Past the bridge you need to repair to cross is another good fishing spot for beach and ocean fish. To find this spot, you will need to go to the spot where the river meets the ocean at the beach, as shown below.

The Beach: Willy's fishing Shop 

As shown below, where our character is next to the fishing shop is another excellent spot to fish while at the beach. 

The Beach: East of Willy's fishing Shop 

Similar to the last spot, you can also get high-tier fish if you use the fishing rod off the easter edge of the pier next to willy's fishing shop, as shown below.

 Cindercap Forest: Leah's Cabin

South of Leah's cabin in the spot shown below is an excellent spot to get high-tier versions of fish that are found in rivers in Stardew Valley. 

Mountain Lake: Island Next to Mines

Going up north, the next best fishing spot is the one shown below in the mountain area of Stardew Valley; here, you will find high-tier versions of all fish home to the mountain lake.

Pelican Town: Jodi's House

As shown below, you can often find willy fishing in the river; it is also one of the best places to fish if you are after river fish.

Pelican Town: North of the Joja Supermarket

North of the joja mart in Plecian town is another decent spot to fish for high-tier river fish; along with this, it's also one of the game's legendary fish locations.
