Walleye Stardew Valley Location & Fishing Guide

Walleye Stardew Valley Location

To be frank, In Stardew Valley there’s no ideal pathway to do things in Stardew Valley. There’s no end goal to be had for that matter. But there are a few things in the game that I would suggest you do unless a hefty reward is not something that is enticing to you. 

One of such things is the bundles. Bundles are essential items that you collect and donate to Junimos in the Community Center. Once you complete a specified number of bundles, Juminos will reward you accordingly for your services. 

And once you manage to complete every single bundle in the game, you will unlock the much-coveted Local Legend achievement. 

This brings me the Walleye Fish, which is required to complete the night fishing bundle.

Fishing in Stardew Valley

To the uninitiated, Fishing in Stardew Valley can seem like an annoying task. Common fish are easy to get your hands on, you don’t have to meet specific conditions for them. 

But for a fish like Walleye, you’ll need to be aware of some conditions that the game demands you to meet. To catch a particular fish you must look for it in the right location.

The weather, time of day, and also the season have to meet the requirement for the specific fish that you have in mind.
