 This is the regular Fishing guide, the guide for ironman / hardcore ironman players can be found here.

Fishing is a skill which involves catching fish from selected spots around Etherum. Higher Fishing levels allow for better fish to be caught and also increases a player's catch rate. The fish that you catch may be cooked using the Cooking skill to create food which may be used later to regain hitpoints during combat. Fishing is also a good way to make money, as players often want to buy the raw fish to train their cooking levels.

Getting Fishing Supplies

Each fish requires a specific set of equipment in order to be caught. There are three fishermen in Etherum, one in Catherby another one in Karamja, and the last is in the Donator Zone. These Fishermen sell the equipment used for fishing


You can find what equipment is needed to catch each fish in the table below.

Fishing Areas

There are currently 6 main areas to train up fishing: Draynor, Catherby, Karamja, Bandit Camp, Ressource Area and Donator Zone.


To get to Catherby, go to the Skill Training Teleports choose Draynor.


The image below shows the map and what you can fish in Draynor.



To get to Catherby, go to the Skill Training Teleports choose Catherby.


The image below shows the map and what you can fish in Catherby.



To get to Karamja, go to the Skill Training Teleports and teleport to Karamja.


The image below shows the map and what you can fish in Karamja.


Bandit Camp

However, The Bandit Camp is located in the Wilderness so it is very dangerous to fish here as you might get killed by another player.

To get to the Bandit Camp, go to the Player Killing Teleports and teleport to Bandit Camp.


This is what you can fish at Bandit camp:


Ressource Area

To get to ressource Area, TP to Mage Bank, bring a sharp weapon to cut spider webs outside of Mage Bank, then walk East until you pass the ravine and get to the door, which you can either peek or pass for 2.5m gp

This is what it looks like inside


Donator Zone

You can get to the Donator Zone by using the "Donator Zone" teleport which is found in the Donator section of the Quest Tab or by typing ::dz. When you arrive from your teleport, simply run north and you will see a fishing spot in the river.



All though Karambwans and Anglerfishes give more experience than all other fishes, they can only be fished in the wilderness, which makes acquiring them very difficult.
