The Stringfish is one of the rarest fish in Animal Crossing New Horizons. It only appears four months out of the year, and at a specific time of the day. If you need to get this elusive critter to complete your collection, you are in luck. Here is everything you need to know to catch a Stringfish in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
The Stringfish is a seasonal fish. It is only available in winter – between December and March for the Northern Hemisphere, and from June to September in the Southern Hemisphere.
In Animal Crossing New Horizons, you can catch a Stringfish in two types of locations: the clifftop rivers and the ponds. This fish only appears when the sun comes down. The best time to catch a Stringfish is from 4 PM to 9 AM.
But catching a Springfish is not an easy task for all islanders. Like most rare fish, the Springfish has a spawning requirement. This fish won’t appear unless you already caught a total of 100 fish.
The Stringfish is one of the most valuable fish in the game. You can sell it for 15,000 Bells, the highest price for a fish. The only other fish that is as valuable is the Dorado, which is only available from June to September in the Northern Hemisphere and from December to March in the Southern Hemisphere. If you would rather place your newly-caught fish inside your house, it will give you a 777-point Happy Home Academy bonus.
