Where to Find the Cutthroat Trout in Palia

Just like every floppy friend in the game, they appear during specific times and at particular locations. In the case of the Cutthroat Trout (which I’m guessing is some kind of cross between a Trout and a Pihranna), you can find them in the rivers between Thorny Thicket and Statue Garden. If you see any flowing river around Statue Garden, that’ll be your best bet. If you see ripples in the water, or more specifically, rings, then fish there. It doesn’t exactly increase your chances, but it does increase the ratio that whatever you do catch ends up being a 5-star fish, which sells for way more and makes higher quality food.

It’s not the rarest or cutest fish in the world, but it is useful for a decent amount of things in Palia. Aside from that winning smile, the Cutthroat Trout can be used to make dishes like Trout Dinner, or other basic fish dishes. You can sell it for about 70 Gold, or if you’re lucky and catch a 5-Star one, 105 Gold. Occasionally, NPCs will ask for one as a weekly quest item, so knowing where they are may prove more handy than you think in the long run, no matter what you’re up to.
