Skyrim-Fishing-Gameplay

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition added fishing to the game, but you can only cast your line at preset locations around the province. Each hold has multiple fishing spots with unique fish to find, and you’ll need to find them all if you want to complete the new Catch of the Day quest. Thankfully, fishing in Skyrim is much simpler than it is in other games. The hard part is finding out where you can actually cast a line. Here are all the fishing spots in Skyrim that we’ve discovered so far.

All Skyrim Fishing Locations

Each region of Skyrim has predetermined fishing locations. Fishing spots are marked with Fishing Supplies, which can be interacted with to begin fishing. You can purchase maps of fishing spots for each hold from general goods vendors like Belethor in Whiterun. These are all the Skyrim fishing spots we’ve found so far.

Whiterun Fishing Spots

Skyrim-Whiterun-Fishing-Spots

There are 3 fishing spots in the Whiterun hold. One is just outside Riverwood (described in our fishing guide), the other is south of Riverwood, and the third is way to the west of Bleak Falls Barrow. You can purchase this fishing map from Belethor in Whiterun.

Winterhold Fishing Spots

There are 2 fishing spots in the Winterhold hold. The city is right in the middle of both of them. The first site is to the left along the northern coast, while the second location is to the east of Winterhold near an island a short distance off the coast. You can purchase this fishing map from Belethor in Whiterun.

The Rift Fishing Spots (Riften)

The Reach Fishing Spots (Markarth)
