Equipment[edit | edit source]

Fishing uses two types of items, divided into consumables and equipment. Consumables are used up at the rate of one item for each fish caught and are stackable, while the equipment is non-stackable and reusable.

Levels 1 - 20 – Shrimp / Anchovies[edit | edit source]

Raw shrimps Raw anchovies Net fish for shrimp. Good locations include:

At level 15, you will begin to catch anchovies too.

  • Starting experience - 0
  • Experience needed - 4,470
  • Shrimps needed - 447 (4,470 experience)
  • Anchovies needed (from 15 to 20) - 139 (2,085 experience)

Level 20-40/99 – Trout / Salmon[edit | edit source]

Raw trout Raw salmon Fly fish trout at either Barbarian Village or Lumbridge. Once you have reached level 30, you will begin catching salmon and can expect to receive between 30,000 and 50,000 Fishing experience per hour. If you choose to drop your fish rather than bank them(either at Edgeville or the Cooks' Guild), you will gain slightly more experience per hour.

  • Starting experience - 4,470
  • Experience needed - 32,754
  • Trout needed - 656 (32,800 experience)
  • Salmon needed (from 30-40) - 341 (23,870 experience)

Even past level 40, "powerfishing" trout/salmon is the best method of training Fishing all the way until level 99.

Level 40-50 – Lobster[edit | edit source]

Raw lobster Fish lobsters at Musa Point. Optionally, if you've completed Dragon Slayer, you can use the Corsair Cove Resource Area to fish lobster. At level 50, it is better to catch swordfish/tuna instead as doing so will yield slightly better exp/hour. Lobsters provide better profit/hour than fly fishing, but at the cost of reduced exp/hour (20,000 to 30,000, as opposed to 30,000 to 50,000)

  • Starting experience - 37,224
  • Experience needed - 64,109
  • Lobsters needed - 713 (64,170 experience)

Level 50-99 – Swordfish / Tuna[edit | edit source]

Raw swordfish Raw tuna Harpoon swordfish at Musa Point. Optionally, if you've completed Dragon Slayer, you can use the Corsair Cove Resource Area to harpoon fish. You will also catch tuna, which you should drop. This method will yield up to 30,000 experience per hour.

  • Starting experience - 101,333
  • Experience needed - 12,933,098
  • Tunas needed - 161,664 (12,933,120 experience) or
  • Swordfish needed - 129,331 (12,933,100 experience).
