Animal Crossing New Horizons: How to Catch a Pike
Head to the river to catch this large fish.
September brings lots of new fish and bugs to islands in the Northern Hemisphere in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. One of these new fish is the pike, which can only be found in the river.
Here’s everything you need to know about finding and catching a pike in Animal Crossing: New Horizons!
Pike will appear on islands in the Northern Hemisphere from September to December. According to GameWith, they will appear on islands in the Southern Hemisphere from March to June. The pike can appear in the river at any time of day.
Pike are large fish, so you’ll need to look for a large shadow in the river when you want to find one. Check out our short gameplay video below to see exactly what the pike’s shadow looks like!
Each pike can be sold for 1,800 Bells at Nook’s Cranny, or for even more if you sell it to C.J. when he visits your island. You’ll also need to donate one of these fish to Blathers at the museum if you want to finish your museum’s collection.
In our experience, pike aren’t very common, so it may take you some time to track one down. 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.
