Reel in a big catch in Fae Farm with our fishing guide. Learn how to play the fishing minigame and discover every species in Azoria.

Fae Farm‘s fishing mechanics can be demanding. Reel the fish at the wrong time, and the line will break. Let the lure fall too far from the fish, and they won’t even take the bait.

This all translates to minutes wasted time watching fish swim back and forth; your character is stuck helplessly on the shore. If this experience sounds all too familiar, this Fae Farm fishing guide should come in handy.

Fae Farm’s Fishing Minigame, Explained

Screenshot by Gamepur

The Fae Farm fishing minigame isn’t the easiest thing to master, but it gets easier over time. Fish swim in the lakes, rivers, and seashores of Azoria. You should be able to spot them before dropping the line. Though each body of water has its type of fish species, there are also fish marked with a rainbow aura around them — rare fish, like Sardine or Rainbow Trout.

To fish in Fae Farm, follow these steps:

  1. Head to either a river, lake, or seashore.
  2. Spot a fish swimming by and try to pinpoint its swimming route.
  3. Drop the line before the fish’s view to catch its attention.
  4. Jiggle the lure twice to get the fish to bite the bait.
  5. Start reeling the fish back to shore. Press the power button to reel if the fish is facing your way. If the fish is facing the opposite way, stop reeling.

Tip: The closer the fish, the easier it is to reel it!
