Tales of Arise fishing guide – where to find all rods and lures


Like all good JRPG games, Tales of Arise has a rugged fishing mode that you can relax with when you need a break from saving the world.

The most obvious benefit of fishing is catching ingredients for fish recipes, but you can also trade fish for items at Talka Pond in Menancia and sell the excess catch if you need the Gald. Catching all 44 fish earns you the Godly Angler achievement. It might sound intimidating, but Arise has several lures and rods that make it easy to target specific fish species.

You’ll come across several fishing spots long before you unlock your first set of rods and lures. Fishing is an optional system, but a compulsory scene is triggered on the road to Mahag Saar after leaving Elde Menancia. An NPC teaches you how to fish and you will get Kisara’s personal fishing rod and lure.

Our Tales of Arise fishing guide explains the basics and where every fishing spot on Dahna is located, as well as how to get every rod and lure.

Tales of Arise Fishing Basics

Fishing requires no bait and you can technically catch any fish with any rod or lure. However, each lure has a set of fish that are more likely to spawn when you use it.

Once you’ve found a spot and cast your line, you can shake the lure to quickly attract a specific fish with a quick brief event. Once the fish is bitten, you have two more QTEs to deal with while rewinding it.

The first is simply to tilt the rod in the direction shown on the screen, although the second will appear at regular intervals, where you have to press the button or key shown to hold the fish on the line and pull it further.

Miss these prompts too often or let the fish icon slide too far into the red, and it will escape.

Tales of Arise Fishing spots

There are 12 Tales of Arise fishing spots distributed among the five kingdoms. Some are fairly easy to spot – the Calaglia spot has its own separate map – although others are hidden from the main road.

Tales of Arise Calaglia Fishing Spots

The only fishing spot in Calaglia is the Grotto of Solitude. Access it from the western edge of the map between Ulzebek and Mosgul.

Tales of Arise Cyslodia Fishing spots

Nevira snow plains

From the campsite just after the Rudhir forest, take the small path on the right. The fishing spot is at the end.

Frozen Valley

Turn left at the campsite before the bridge.

Tales of Arise Elde Menancia Fishing spots

Overseer’s Hill

Instead of turning onto Traslida Highway at the campsite, go straight ahead to find this fishing spot.

Talka Pond

This is where you learn to fish, just south of Viscint.

Tales of Arise Mahag Saar Fishing spots

Adan Lake

This one is right next to the campsite. Lake Adan is home to smaller versions of Menancia’s latest boss, so be careful how you go while you’re here.

Ruins of Adan

Before going down the narrow path to the campsite, turn right to find this fishing spot.

Hidden dock

Speak to Mahavar at the docks to access this fishing spot.

Tales of Arise Ganath Haros Fishing spots

The Final Realm has four fishing grounds, although two of them are stuck behind quests.

Glittering wood

This one is just east of the fast travel point, near a resource gathering node.

Lavtu swamp

The swamp fishing ground is at its southernmost point, southwest of the entrance to Plegion.

Fogwharl Limestone Caverns – Inner Shrine

Head to the back of the shrine along the steep path to find this secluded spot, but only after completing the Indomitable Rage quest in Thistlym.

Uninhabited island

The island’s fishing ground is also at its southernmost point. It only unlocks after completing Beyond the Tomb by the Sea of ​​Tuah, which unlocks itself once you’ve traveled to Rena.
