WoW Classic: Fishing Skill Level By Zone

Our WoW Classic: Fishing Skill Level By Zone List features a look at how much you will have to have leveled your fishing up to fish in certain zones without finding junk in the water! In general, you will want to stick to places that are around the same level. This is particularly important if you are on a PvP server, because you'll be a prime target for getting ganked. Fishing can be a very lucrative profession, so leveling it up in the right areas is a great way to gain some gold!

  1. I am 300 of 300 in fishing skill, I have a +5 fishing pole. When I fish in Azshara, southridge beach I am not allowed to fish without a lure. Why if I’M maxed in fishing skill?

    1. Bay of Storms has a 350 (I believe) fishing requirement. i.E. you can only fish there with a lure. Just like you can fish STV with a skill around 175-200 but you have misses and junk.
