Animal Crossing New Horizons: January Fishing Tourney Event - Dates, Rewards, and More

Animal Crossing is getting another massive seasonal update later this week.

This may be the last massive update for the year, but we are always looking ahead to what is getting offered next.

Fishing is one of the core gameplay mechanics within New Horizons; and the annual fishing tournaments are some of the best fun we have had yet.

This will once again be present in the coming months, with January's fishing event looking to be one of the best.

Here's all we know about the tournament! 



The January fishing tournament is going to take place on January 9th, 2021! 

As well, the event is going to take place all day. 


What Is It 

The quarterly fishing event will see the player try and catch as many valuable fish as possible over the course of the day. 

C.J. will come to your island, and you will be able to enter into the event via talking to them.

This is also where you will gain points, as you will have to bring the fish back to C.J. to earn these points. 

There are various rewards you will be able to earn, along with a commemorative trophy depending on how many points you earn. 

  • 100 Points Total - Bronze Trophy
  • 200 Points Total - Silver Trophy
    300 Points Total - Gold Trophy



Here are some of the previous rewards players were able to obtain via IGN.

We can suspect we will be able to earn somewhat similar rewards this time around as well!
