Sun Haven – The Complete Fishing Guide

Sun Haven‘s Early Access has been out for a while and if you’re a fan of Stardew Valley and farming-type games then you need to get on this. It’s basically Harvest Moon in a fantasy setting where you can fish, farm and mine while riding on your pet lion.

Like all great life simulation games, Sun Haven has a fishing mechanic. Which is my personal favourite thing to do in most games. As with most great fishing mechanics in a game, there are a lot of things to know and progress to. Such as the different rods, fish, skill tree and more. In this guide, we’re going to cover all of that so put that bait on your lure and let’s get started!

Disclaimer: Sun Haven is still in Early Access and as such this information is subject to change. We’ll be adding more to this guide as the game updates.

How To Fish

  1. To start fishing first you must look for an area with fish. This can be seen as small moving shadows in bodies of water.
  2. Next, cast a fishing rod with the left mouse button near the fish shadows. Hold on to the button and a meter will appear that indicates how far the line will be cast. Release the left mouse button to cast.
  3. Attached to the end of the line is a bobber. If a fish bites, the bobber will fully submerge into the water with a “boop” sound indicator. Hit the left mouse button then to reel in your fish (or other aquatic creature).

You can catch fish with fishing nets. Cast your fishing net in the river pond or beach to automatically catch fish.
