How do you fish on Animal Crossing: New Horizons controls?
Press the X button to open your inventory, navigate to the rod and select ‘Hold’ to equip it. Once you’ve done this, head to a body of water — such as a river or the ocean — and press A to cast a line into the water.
When can you catch fish in Animal Crossing?
Most fish are available all day or during a specific period of time, which usually changes at 4 a.m., 9 a.m., 4 p.m., and 9 p.m. Since you can’t see the fish before you catch them, like how you can for bugs, you’ll have to rely on the size of the fish’s shadow to tell you which fish it may be.
Why do I keep losing fish in Animal Crossing?
If the player is too slow, or doesn’t press A at all, the fish will escape and disappear.
