How to Fish in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Fishing isn’t new in New Horizons and has always been a part of Animal Crossing games. To fish, you’ll obviously need a Fishing Rod which can be crafted through DIY recipes or purchased from the Resident Services building. After getting your Fishing Rod, travel to a waterbody and cast your rod into dark shadows (indicating the presence of fish) in the water to reel them in.
