How do I catch Disney Dreamlight Valley fish?

Let’s start with the Disney Dreamlight Valley fishing basics. In order to start catching fish, you need to complete the Fishing Expedition quest to get a fishing rod from Goofy. From there, you simply need to equip your rod, then approach a body of water, hold the action button to get casting, then release when your cursor lands on your desired location in the water.

Wait to get a bite and hit the action button again when the prompt pops up to start reeling. Then, you just have to hit the action button every time the circle around your float turns green. When successful, a message pops up showing your haul.

You can fish at any point in a designated body of water, but to get the good stuff you need to pay attention to the different coloured ripples that appear in the water.

  • White ripples take two reeling attempts to catch a fish. They usually reward common fish, like bass and cod
  • Blue ripples take three successful reeling attempts to catch a fish. They usually reward medium-rarity fish, like bream and shrimp
  • Gold ripples take four successful reeling attempts to catch a fish. They usually reward the rarest fish, like lobsters

You can fish outside of the ripples too – this is the best way to farm Disney Dreamlight Valley seaweed.

How do I get Disney Dreamlight Valley fish fast?

If you want to increase your yield when fishing, bringing a pal is the best option. Invite a companion who has the fishing trait to join you and, when you catch a fish, they have a chance of dropping another right next to you. Fishing with them also increases their friendship level, and the higher their friendship level, the better the effects of their fishing trait. Just hanging out with them and bringing them along for the ride will see you swimming in fish in no time!

Another way to earn some extra fish is by fixing Moana’s boat. Of course, you need to bring her to your island first, and complete the ‘After the Storm’, ‘The Great Maui’, and ‘How Far You’ll Go’ quests in order to unlock it. From there, you can head to the raft and chat with Moana to claim some of the fish she catches at sea. Upgrading Moana’s boat through the Scrooge McDuck sign increases the amount of fish you get, and how often you can claim them.

That’s everything we’ve got on Disney Dreamlight Valley fish for now. If you’re looking for a little extra assistance, be sure to check out our Disney Dreamlight Valley realms guide and unlock a whole new world today.
