Animal Crossing: New Horizons – New Fish and Bugs to Catch in June

by Kyle Hanson


It’s the start of a brand new month in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but more than that it’s the changing of seasons in a few big ways. Shifting from Spring to Summer in the northern hemisphere and Fall giving way to Winter in the south means some large changes are coming. Of course this means fish and bugs will be quite different on June 1st as compared to May and the months that came before it. So we’re going to break it all down for you with the new fish and bugs to catch in June in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Once again the Northern Hemisphere sees the most change with the arrival of sharks. These rare and extremely valuable fish will be on everyone’s radar. Thankfully, we’ve already laid out some tips for how to catch sharks in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Other than this it’s pretty standard shifts in the fish and bugs available, though finding a dung beetle rolling a snowball should be fun down south.
