Where to Find Walleye

The Walleye is a freshwater fish, so you can find them in freshwater bodies of water. You can find this fish in rivers, lakes, and ponds. The highest chance to find them is in places like the rivers in Pelican Town, the Mountain lakes, rivers in the Cindersap Forest area, or the Cindersap Forest pond.

The best chance to catch a Walleye is in the Cindersap Forest Pond in Stardew Valley. They mostly appear during the Fall season and on rainy days. Since Rainy Days are slim during the Fall season, you have to use this chance to fish as much as you can. While it is Raining in the Fall Season, you have a 32% chance of catching a Walleye in the CIndersap Forest Pond.

If you choose the Riverside Farm or Forest Farm at the start of the game, there is a chance you can catch this fish in the comfort of your farm.

Best Time and Weather for Walleye Fishing in Stardew Valley

If you’re out fishing between 12 pm and 2 AM, that’s when Walleye is most active. You should keep fishing during this time to have the best chance of catching a Walleye.

Fall is the best season to catch them, especially when it’s raining. But you can use special bait or a Rain Totem to catch them in other seasons or weather.

Easy Ways to Catch Walleye in Stardew Valley

If fishing isn’t your thing, try looking in garbage cans during Fall and Winter – sometimes you’ll find a Walleye there. Finding them in the garbage cans is so rare, however, it is the easiest way to catch one without effort and payment.

If you need an alternative, you should check out The Traveling Cart in the Cindersap Forest often. They sell randomized items every time they spawn. The Traveling Cart has a chance to sell Walleyes occasionally.

What to Do with Walleye

If you see a “Help Wanted” sign outside Pierre’s General Store, delivering a Walleye can get you some gold and make friends happy. Walleye sells for different prices based on their quality, so you can earn money selling them too in Stardew Valley.
