Fishing

Fishing is a side activity that allows the player to capture fish from rivers and oceans. When equipped with a fishing rod and bait, the player can approach designated Fishing Spots and cast a line into the water.
Fishes caught can be used for Cooking, Gifting or rearing.


ControlsEdit

  1. To cast a line, the player needs to approach a designated fishing spot and press the Left Mouse Button.
    • The player consumes 6 stamina points per cast.
    • Bait is only consumed when a fish is caught.
  2. When a fish bites onto the hook, use the left-mouse button to start reeling.
  3. Hold the left-mouse button to reel the line.
  4. While reeling, move the mouse left or right in correspondence to keep the bubble on the fish. When the angle is too large, the tension will turn red. When the bubble is on or near the fish, the tension will decrease.
  5. Continue reeling until the fish is captured.
  6. Avoid making the red bubble fill the transparent bubble. If it does, the line snaps and the fish will escape.

Fishing Spots Edit

In My Time at Portia, it is only possible to fish in certain places where fish are pooled together swimming in circles. These are called Fishing Spots. There are currently 8 of these spots to choose from with a specific assortment of fish in each one. Some fishing spots are not available right away and require progression along the story missions to access. All areas can drop a Golden Ring.

Here is a convenient map of the fishing spot locations and rarity of each fish type per spot:

Spots Wasteland

The Collapsed Wasteland fishing spot is on south side of a low lying lake in the center of the Collapsed Wasteland. It contains difficult to catch and high value fish, but requires advancing to at least around halfway through the first Spring to access. It can also be difficult to reach, as it is surrounded by hostile enemies. The Collapsed Wasteland becomes available after the mission Hazardous Ruins, which is started by approaching the Collapsed Wasteland gate in mid-Spring of the first year.

Spots DesertRiver

The Desert River fishing spot is far north of the desert along the highest point of the river, just northwest of the Wind Turbines. It contains the moderately difficult to catch and very valuable fish. This is currently the most lucrative fishing spot in the game if you are fishing primarily for Gols. The Player Character can fish there anytime after completing the mission The Portia Bridge. The desert can be reached once the bridge is built, even if the mission is not turned in. This fishing spot is the furthest from the Workshop and can require the majority of a day to get there without the aid of Dee-dee Stops and/or a horse.
