'Genshin Impact' fishing spots: 27 locations, respawn times, and how to fish

Fishing has arrived in Genshin Impact.

Version 2.1 finally lets you adopt the hobby your dad is always trying to convince you to do, albeit in a free-to-play anime RPG. Unlike your father’s fishing, angling in Genshin Impact will net you actual rewards. For your efforts, you can gain achievements, namecards, and an extremely powerful Polearm weapon fittingly called “The Catch.”

Here’s where you can find every fishing spot in Genshin Impact, along with some helpful tips for fishing.

How do you fish in Genshin Impact?

Fishing in Genshin Impact is simple. There are specific locations in each region where you can cast a line as long as you have a rod. You can spot a fishing location by the ripples in the water. When you look closer at the ripples, you’ll see numerous fish swimming about. Walk up to the water to start fishing by interacting with the location. You’ll receive a prompt that says “fishing.”

If you can believe it, this will start the fishing process. If you’ve selected the right bait, the fish will make their way to your line.

The selection of fish available varies between locations. Fish you can access also changes based on the time of day. Some exclusively only come out at night, while others can only be found in the day. (Animal Crossing: New Horizons fans out there will be familiar with this particular cycle of life.)

Each fish requires different bait, so make sure you have the right bait equipped if you’re hoping for a particular fish.

Which Genshin Impact fishing bait should you use?

There are four types of bait in Genshin Impact, each one will let you catch different fish. You can purchase recipes for each bait type by speaking to the fishing association member in Mondstadt.

What is the Genshin Impact fish respawn time?

The exact respawn time for fish is currently unknown. What we know for sure is that that fish are available again by reset. This means it takes 24 hours at most for fish to respawn in an area. If you’re hunting for fish, it’s also good to remember that fish run in day/night cycles. If you’ve exhausted the fish in a pool during one cycle, try changing your clock to the opposite time of day. You should be able to get some extra fish by using this method.
