Harvestella is unlike most other Square Enix games that we’re used to. It mixes elements of a farming sim and RPG combat, letting players enjoy both genres while developing their land and meeting new allies to help them on their journeys. Just like in other farming sims, there’s also some fishing that has to be done. In Harvestella, fishing can net you some nice rewards, and the joy of filling out the Encyclopedia is certainly one of them. To do that, you’ll need to fish out all of the rare fish as well. Below, we will tell you all the fishing locations for rare fish in Harvestella and how to catch them.

How to catch rare fish in Harvestella

To even begin fishing in Harvestella, you’ll first need to obtain Fishing Knowledge from Lethe’s general store for the price of 800 Grilla. This will open up fishing spots on your map, but more importantly, this will give access to the Water Biome on your farm. After completing tasks for the Great Water Faerie, your Water Biome will reach level 2.

You should go there a investigate the water pond, where you’ll get to meet Sahagin, a talking fish. Sahagin will tell you about rare fish and give you cryptic advice on how to catch them, after upgrading your Fishing skill to level 2. With that, you’ll be ready to catch some rare fish.
