Animal Crossing New Horizons: How to Catch a Salmon
This river fish will only appear during one month of the year.
In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, many fish and bugs will appear for multiple months during the year, giving you plenty of time to catch them. However, there are a few that are only available for a single month before disappearing. One of these is the salmon, and it’s about to start appearing on islands in the Northern Hemisphere!
Salmon will appear on islands in the Northern Hemisphere in the month of September. According to GameWith, they can appear on islands in the Southern Hemisphere in the month of March. Salmon can appear in the “mouth” of the river at any time of day. This is the area where the river opens up into the sea.
Salmon have a fairly large shadow, but it’s not the largest shadow in the game. Check out our gameplay video below to see the exact shadow size you’re looking for when you’re trying to add a salmon to your Critterpedia.
Salmon can be sold for 700 Bells each at Nook’s Cranny, or for even more if you sell them to C.J. when he visits your island.
Even though salmon are fairly common, it will still take you quite some time to track down one of every fish in the game. That being the case, you may want to check out the ChargePlay Clutch from HyperX. It can extend your device’s battery life so you can play New Horizons (and other Switch games) for a longer period of time before having to charge your Switch. Head over to HyperX’s website to learn more about the ChargePlay Clutch and the company’s other Switch accessories.
