How to Fish in V Rising

You can Fish in V Rising by crafting a Fishing Pole at a Woodworking Bench. From there, you simply need to equip it, go to a Fishing location, and left-click on the pool of Fish to cast your line. When the water splashes, left-click again and you will reel a fish (or other loot) in as long as you're fast enough.

How to Unlock Fishing in V Rising

You can unlock Fishing in V Rising by defeating Rufus the Foreman in the Farbane Woods. This unlocks the Woodworking Bench which allows you to craft the Fishing Rod.

 
 

How Long Does It Take for Fish to Respawn?

Based on my testing, it takes anywhere from 6-48 hours for a fishing spot to respawn, although there is no guarantee that a fishing spot will respawn within that window. There appear to be other factors at play here -- I've observed that some specific spots will not respawn for several in-game days.


V Rising Fishing Map

Every blue dot represents a location where I have observed fish spawning firsthand. Bear in mind that this is not an exhaustive map -- some locations did not appear to spawn fish at all, even if it looks like they should. That said, I can guarantee that each blue dot is definitely a spot where fish can spawn.

Best Place to Fish in V Rising

The best place to Fish in V Rising depends on what loot you're looking to get, and that depends on the zone. Therefore, you should look for the best place in each zone.

  • Farbane Woods - the pools west, north, and south of the Bandit Armory.
  • Dunley Farmlands - north of the Colosseum.
  • Hallowed Mountains - the small pool north of the Frozen Cave where you fight Terrorclaw the Ogre. (In fact, this appears to be the only place you can fish in this zone.)
  • Cursed Forest - the western half of the Cursed Forest has a fair amount of Fishing spots.
  • Silverlight Hills - the Brighthaven Docks on the western side of the map has a lot of Fishing spots, but it also has a lot of challenging enemies you might have to fight.

V Rising Fishing Guide - Fishing Drops

V Rising Fishing Drops

These are the V Rising Fishing drops I've observed in my testing with small sample sizes. This information should give you a good rough idea of what you can expect to find in each zone.

V Rising Fishing Drop Rates

Based on my experience, you can expect to get items in these categories (with some variance in what you actually get depending on the zone). Bear in mind that these are estimates; it's unclear if gems, books, and hats are in their own loot table or if each individual item has its own separate percentage chance.

  • 50-60% chance of getting a Fish
  • 5-15% chance of getting metal Ingots
  • 10-15% chance of getting a gem
  • 5-10% chance of getting a Fish Bone
  • 5-10% chance of getting a Crafting resource, such as Whetstone or Glass
  • 1-5% chance of getting a book with a Crafting recipes
