Fishing has been added as a new mechanic in Genshin Impact update 2.1. You are going to need to fish in order to get The Catch. In this Genshin Impact guide, we are going to walk you through how you can unlock fishing and get your first fishing rod.
Unlock Fishing In Genshin Impact
The quest that unlocks fishing in the game is only available once you have unlocked the Serenitea Pot. If you have already done that then you can unlock the fishing mechanic by completing the World Quest called Exploding Population.
Chances are that you are in Inazuma when you are trying to unlock fishing in the game but you need to talk to Katheryne in Mondstadt. This is only going to work on Katheryne in Mondstadt not in Inazuma or Liyue so keep that in mind.
Once you talk to her you will have to talk to Nantuck. The steps are pretty straightforward so go ahead and follow the steps. There is nothing complicated. Nantuck will take you to a fishing spot and you will get a fishing rod. You will also learn the basics of fishing.
How Fishing Works In Genshin Impact
If you see ripples in the water then that means that there is fish in the water and you can catch them. Different types of bait attract different kinds of fish. If you use your elemental skill or burst then the fish will swim away.
You need to press or hold in order to keep the hook in the yellow zone in the tension gauge. Some fish are harder to catch than others and will make staying in the yellow zone much harder.
