How To Fish In Palia

Palia Fishing-1

We’ll start off with the basics – how does fishing actually work?

  • Grab your starter Rod from the mail – Einar sends it to you
  • Head to a piece of water – you can fish anywhere where the water is deep enough in Palia, although you can also hunt down fishing hotspots that have a better chance to give you a rare or star fish
  • Equip your Rod using R and the wheel
  • Cast the Rod into the water by holding down left mouse button
  • Hold the line there until you hear a sound – watch the bobber, most fish bite three/four times
  • Click left mouse button and pull the fish out of the water
  • Hold down left mouse button and move the mouse side to side, keeping the fish within the green markers (shown in the image above)
  • You will eventually catch the fish

Your Rod does have a health bar, shown at the bottom of the screen (the green bar.) Some fish just can’t be caught with the basic Rod – you’ll need to upgrade the Rod at Einar’s shop and also buy Rod health upgrades.

Fishing Tips

That’s the basic principle of fishing, but here are some more advanced tips.

  • Different areas will spawn different fish, such as Rivers or the big Lake in Kilima
  • You also have access to three different types of bait: No Bait, Worm, and Glow Worm
    • These types of bait essentially work as a three-tier system, with rarer, more expensive fish only catchable with Glow Worms
  • You don’t get Glow Worms until quite late in the game, and they have to be produced on your property
  • Various villagers will request fish as gifts, either as their daily gift, liked gift, or loved gift – save the fish you’ve seen pop-up before
  • You can save your bait if you don’t want to catch the fish – just wait until the fish shows up, see what type of fish it is, then ignore it
  • You only lose your bait if you try to catch the fish and the fish escapes while reeling it in
  • Don’t reel when a fish jumps out of the water – this should save you some Rod health
