It can be a daunting task to catch some of these bugs, check out all obtainable ones here!

Bug catching is an extremely important part of Animal Crossing: New Horizons; it has been in the franchise since its inception and it is one of the best activities to do.

But it can be a challenge to raise money or fill out the museum if you're not sure what fish you can catch when they're available and where; you also won't want to waste your time catching bugs that fetch for nothing either.

Here is our complete bug guide for Animal Crossing New Horizons!
