In Far Cry 6, going fishing is perhaps an easier way of farming for resources than hunting the other animals across Yara. The chances are that if you're near a body of water in Yara, you're probably near a fishing spot. So make sure you've got your Fishing Rod ready and Angler's Gloves equipped!
In this guide, we've shown you all known fishing locations, the various types of fish you can catch, and what to do with fish meat.
Where to Find All Fishing Spots and Locations
The map embedded below features all the available spots for you to go fishing and is provided by our friends at MapGenie. They've got a fully interactive and customisable Far Cry 6 map, which you can go and check out here.
As you can see, there are multiple types of fish in Yara. You can purchase brochures from the Pro Angler at the Fishing Hut of one of your Guerrilla Camps, which will point out the locations of specific species to you. However, this can be costly and if you'd rather save your hard-earned pesos, then the above map and this guide will help!
Some of these fish are much more difficult to reel in than others, so we've listed them and noted their difficulty for you. Fish across Yara are typically easy, hard, or extremely difficult to catch:
- Horse-Eye Jack
- French Grunt
- Burro Grunt
As your fishing skill improves, and you upgrade your equipment, you'll be catching bigger fish in no time.
How to Catch Fish
Catching fish in Far Cry 6 can arguably be a bit difficult initially as you get used to the mechanics. Before you grow accustomed to it, it is a fight between you and the fish you've hooked. Keeping them hooked can be rather difficult, especially if you're dealing with an evasive or hardened species.
We have a guide on how to catch fish and get the most out of your fishing experience in Yara here. Our most important tip for starting out, however, is to remember to pull your Fishing Rod towards the opposite direction in which the fish is pulling while still reeling them in. Good luck!
What to Do With Fish
Any fish that you catch in Far Cry 6 can be taken to a workbench or one of Juan's Arms Dealers to be traded for materials. More specifically, they can be traded for Recycled Glass, which can be a valuable resource for upgrading your equipment and facilities.
Alternatively, you can keep the fish and cook them at the La Cantina of one of your Guerrilla Camps. Food in Yara can offer certain status effects. For example, Carp Meat can be used to make Flambe Fajitas, which will improve your resistance to fire and automatically extinguish flames if you catch fire. The effect will last for an hour and can prove valuable if timed right, so keep this and the effects of other foods, in mind!
Sooner or later, you'll become competition for the Pro Angler himself as you fish more. If you wish to take on a further challenge, we certainly recommend trying to hunt for sharks. Hunting sharks can be fun, and if you manage to kill one using a grenade, there's a cool trophy up for grabs that we talk more about in our guide to all of Far Cry 6's Easter Eggs.
