Whether you need something to cook up into fish stew or solve a quest, you can find most fish pretty easily with the right tools on hand. Any old fish can turn over Gold, but specific ones can help improve a lot of aspects of the game, like quests or romancing. The Fairy Carp in particular is pretty and helpful, selling for over 100 Gold even without needing to be a 5-star fish. If it is a 5-star catch though, you can expect a turnover of over 200 Gold a pop.

Tips for Catching the Fairy Carp in Palia

The Fairy Carp is a relatively rare fish in Palia. So if you simply drop a line with the first fishing rod that you get in the game and no worms, you may as well be fishing in a completely different spot. While you may get one eventually, that’s no way to reliably fish up some pretty Fairy Carp. Instead, consider upgrading your fishing rod as much as you can while either buying Worms from the store or getting some from your own Worm Farm. While fishing, keep in mind the time of day, since Fairy Carp only spawn in the morning and the evening.
