Best Way To Catch Golden Trout

Can Only Be Caught On Cliffs

Clifftop

The Golden Trout is a fish which only inhabits bodies of water found on top of cliffs. As long as the water is on an elevated place reachable with stairs or a ladder, a pond or river are both okay!

Increase The Number Of Cliffs On Your Island

By using the Island Designer tool, you'll be able to make more cliffs on your island, meaning it's possible to increase your chance of catching this fish even without using bait. You'll need to get a rank 3 island rating to unlock this feature, however!

> Island Designer Tool Details

Make Bodies Of Water On The Cliffs

Try expanding the amount of water you have on top of cliffs to improve your chances of seeing a Golden Trout. If you don't care too much about appearances, just build a whole bunch of lakes and rivers on top of cliffs to get the best results.

Use Bait

Bait

If you want to catch Golden Trout in an efficient manner, you're definitely going to want to use bait. Go fishing after you've made enough bait - the manila clams needed to make the bait can be obtained easier on rainy days, so give that a try!

Also Spawn On Mystery Islands

By using Nook Miles to go on a Mystery Island Tour, you have the chance of ending up on an island with 4 waterfalls. This is an ideal spot for those who don't have the Island Designer Tool unlocked and lack fish bait. If you've got miles to spare, try this method out.

Got one Golden Trout, with bait, on 2nd level cliff river, at ~8:45 PM, while it was raining.

have farmed for 1 hour and caught 2 chars but not one golden trout.

Had a friend fish on my island for 3 hours trying to get the trout. Either this is coincidence or it doesn't spawn on the second level, but the moment I give him some bait and have him fish on the third floor he not only catches one but two in a row.

caught one on nook island, high cliff river, caught way before 4pm so these times are wrong
