If you want to net yourself a bountiful amount of money and increase your survivability, then you’ll want to learn how to fish in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. 

Like all good open-world games, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla features its own fishing mini-game that you can use to scour the deep water depths. You’ll naturally encounter large bodies of water that you can fish in as you sail your way through the frozen Anglo-Saxon kingdoms. Of course, catching yourself a tasty fish supper can prove to be a little tricky at first.

Armed only with a piece of rope and tethered bait, you’ll need to wrestle with your prey if you wish to secure the game’s most prized catches. In order to help aid you in your fishing quest, we’ve put together a handy Assassin’s Creed Valhalla fishing guide.

How to fish in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Fishing in Assassin's Creed Valhalla
Fishing is a little different in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

Fishing is unlocked in the early stages of the game and you’ll need to master this mechanic if you wish to heal any mortal blows. In order to fish in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, you’ll first need to locate a large body of water. There are various ponds and lakes scattered around the land, so finding one should not prove too difficult. 

Once you’ve located a suitable spot, it’s time to whip out your fishing rope. In order to do this, follow the instruction below:

  1. Bring up the command menu by pressing down on the D-pad.
  2. Aim the fishing rope with the left trigger.
  3. Cast the fishing rope with the right trigger.
  4. When a fish bites, hit the right trigger to hook them on.
  5. Quickly start mashing X/A to reel the fish in.

Certain types of fish put up more resistance than others, so you’ll need to be extra careful when trying to catch rare fish. In some cases, the line will snap if the line takes too much pressure and your prized catch will get away. 

To avoid this, try to ease off mashing X/A every now and again to allow you to adjust the direction of the fishing line. 

If you follow these fishing tips, you’ll be catching plenty of trophy worthy fish in no time. Be sure to check out our other Assassin’s Creed Valhalla guides right here on Dexerto

From Thor’s iconic Hammer to the legendary Excalibur sword, there is seemingly no end to the weapons this battle-hardened Viking can wield.
