In Stardew Valley, fishing is a lucrative skill to master. However, specific types of fish are more profitable than others. The Sturgeon is one such fish that is highly sought after for its Roe, which can be made into Caviar. Here is where and when you need to fish and a way to get this fish without a 100% chance of finding it.
Where to Catch Sturgeon in Stardew Valley
To catch a Sturgeon in Stardew Valley, you need to know where and when to fish. Firstly, the location you want to fish is the Mountain Lake, and the best time to do so is during the Summer or Winter before 7 PM. Fishing for Sturgeon in rainy weather will increase your chances of finding one.
Sturgeon appears only in the Lake Fish Bundle, which means you can only find it at the Mountain Lake in Stardew Valley. A fishing spot with a higher than average chance of locating Sturgeon is by the little island next to the Mines. You can find this island by using the two small bridges that connect to it.
Where to Buy Sturgeon in Stardew Valley
If you only need Sturgeon for making Caviar, then Krobus is your best bet. This vendor sells fish every Wednesday, including Sturgeon, at a price of 200 g. This nominal fee makes buying the fish more accessible than trying to catch one. However, the fish Krobus sells are randomized, so you may not find a Sturgeon each time.
The Traveling Cart also occasionally sells Sturgeon, but at a price range of 600 to 1k g. This option is not cost-effective compared to buying the fish from Krobus or catching it yourself.
Knowing where to catch Sturgeon in Stardew Valley is half the battle. With this guide, you can increase your chances of finding one and maximize your profits. Don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any tips or suggestions in the comments below.
