WoW Fishing Leveling Guide 1 - 600

This Fishing leveling guide will show you the fastest and easiest way how to level Fishing from 1 to 600. Updated for patch 5.4

You'll discover that it requires a lot of patience and time to build your skill level up to the maximum level. You will have to catch about 3000 fish to get from start to finish.

You can skill up your fishing from 1 to 600 in any fishable water. This means you can stand in Orgrimmar all day long and get skillups on your fishing at the same rate as you would in a higher level zone. What decides your skillups is the number of successful catches. From level 1 to 75 you will get a skillpoint on pretty much every successful catch.

If you are low on gold, I recommend you to try this Gold Making Guide, it can help you to make loads of gold.

If you are still leveling your character or you just started a new alt, I recommend you to use a leveling guide. You can level your character to level 90 in 7 days with this guide.

Fishing 1 - 600

Well, this fishing leveling guide will be pretty easy.

Check out my Fishing and Cooking leveling guide if you want to level fishing and cooking together. That guide is a lot more detailed.

So, how do you catch a Fish?

  • First, visit any trainer in the main cities of old Azeroth - just ask a guard, and learn Fishing Apprentice.
  • Go to the nearest water, find the fishing skill icon in your spell book. Stand in front of the lake/river and press the fishing button. Mouse over the lure in the water, and when it splashes, right click on it. Repeat this several hundred times.

    I recommend to go to Pandaria, there you won't catch any junk even with Fishing skill 1. You will catch [Golden Carp] every single time. When your fishing skill will be higher, you will start catching more valuable fish more often. (around 500)

  • Do not forget to visit your fishing trainer when you reach skill 75, 150, 225, 375, 450, and 525 !
  • That's it. You can fish anywhere, even in zones where your fishing skill is too low. You will mostly catch junk, but your fishing skill will increase if you catch something, it does not matter if it's a fish or some junk.
