Catching A Fish Without A Fishing Rod

Can you fish anywhere in Valheim?
Fish can be caught in rivers and in the Ocean biome. You should be able to see them quite easily from the shore or your boat, so pick a good spot near a well-populated area to begin fishing. Equip your fishing rod and fish bait in your inventory (be sure to remember the latter).
