The fish caught by players can either be used for Cooking or exchanged for handsome rewards at any Fishing Association. Here we will be providing a complete list of all the Fish you can find across Teyvat, along with all fishing spots available, and how to unlock Fishing with a fishing rod.

How to Unlock Fishing in Genshin Impact

Credit: Genshin Impact Wiki

In order to unlock fishing with a fishing rod, you must complete the quest Exploding Population by talking to an NPC named Nantuck, who can be found fishing by the shores of Mondstadt’s Cider Lake. Remember that you must be over Adventure Rank 30 to unlock fishing. Simply access your quests and navigate the aforementioned fishing quest. Once you talk to Nantuck, your quest will be activated. There he will give you a mini-tutorial on how to fish using a fishing rod.

After the completion of the fishing tutorial, you will receive a Wilderness Rod, 10 of each bait available in Genshin Impact, and the crafting formula for Fruit Paste Bait. Then you will be required to catch an ornamental fish in Stormbearer Mountains. Once you are done, show your catch to Nantuck and he will reward you with 30,000 Mora and 3x Hero’s Wit for successfully completing the fishing quest.
