The following is a guide on how to get 99 Fishing. There are two main ways to achieve this goal which have been split up into different categories:

  1. Fastest Experience Method
  2. Money Making Method

Fastest Experience Method

Levels 1-5: Shrimp

  • Item Requirements: Small Fishing Net
  • Fish Needed to Catch: 37 Shrimp

There are many places to catch Shrimp, but the suggested location is right near Draynor Village Bank where the Willow Trees are located.

Levels 5-20: Sardine & Herring

  • Item Requirements: ~200 Fishing Bait, Fishing Rod
  • Fish Needed to Catch: 205 Sardine or 137 Herring or a mixture of both

At level 5 Fishing, you can catch Sardine and later at level 10 Fishing, you can catch Herring.

The best place to catch Sardine & Herring is near Draynor Village Bank.

Levels 20-70: Trout & Salmon

  • Item Requirements: Up to 14,664 Feathers, Fly Fishing Rod
  • Fish Needed to Catch: 14,664 Trout or 10,474 Salmon or a mixture of both

There are many popular locations to fish for Trout & Salmon, however, the two most popular locations are Shilo Village and the river West of the Fishing Guild.

It has been proven that the location West of the Fishing Guild is 5-15K more experience per hour than Shilo Village, however, instead of banking the fish, you instead have to sell them to Rasolo's shop (marked in the yellow dot).

Levels 70-99: Leaping Trout/Salmon/Sturgeon (requires 45 Strength and Agility)

Note: If you do not want to get 45 Strength and Agility, the second best method is to continue fishing Trout & Salmon.

  • Item Requirements: Either Fishing Bait or Feathers, Barbarian Rod (requires part of the Barbarian Training miniquest)
  • Skill Requirements: 45 Strength and Agility
  • Fish Needed to Catch: 245,937 Leaping Trout or 175,669 Leaping Salmon or 153,711 Leaping Sturgeon or a mixture of all three

For fastest experience, it is suggested to drop a fish every time you catch one, and then click again on the fishing spot.

The only location to catch these fish are near Otto's Grotto.
