Genshin Impact 2.1: All fish and where to find them

Fishing is the newest trend in Genshin Impact 2.1. With more than 20 different species and fishing spots around Teyvat, it brings some juicy rewards.

Jump To

It is as good as we expected and here’s everything we know about fishing so far.

Getting ready

Genshin Impact players will first have to obtain their Fishing Rod and Bait from Nantuck in the Mondstadt Quest Exploding Population

  • Fishing have an average of 5-6 fish, so you will need to prepare baits before starting your journey.
  • Unfortunately, Nantuck just provides you with Fruit Paste Bait, but this is more than enough to start.
  • There are 4 types of Baits; you can get the rest of Blue Prints exchanging 3 Medakas (type of fish) for each blueprint
  • Best Locations for Medakas are near Windrise, Cider Lake, and the two lakes in Stormterror's Lair.

Fishing Spot Locations

Fishing Spots are located throughout Teyvat, found in Mondstadt, Liyue, and Inazuma.

The interactive map above shows the exact location of Fishing Spots in Genshin Impact, and will update live over time as more are discovered.

Important Note: Fish will respawn every 72 hrs. Make sure you caught both, morning fish and night fish.

However, there are enough Medakas to unlock all baits and the Pool of Sapphire Grace in day one.
