Animal Crossing New Horizons April Fish Guide

A list of every fish available in April in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, as well as their price and how to catch them.

Fishing is a lot of Animal Crossing players' favorite in-game activity, and that hasn't changed in New Horizons even with the Bunny Day egg overdose.

Catching fish is a different sort of stress from catching insects. You've got to have your ears open and be ready to strike when the fish bites! But you can't catch every fish all in one month.

Fish are seasonal just as in real life, meaning you can only catch certain fish at each time of the year. Not only that, but many are only available at particular times of the day. So you've got to be mindful if you're trying to pack your museum with everything available this April.

The only thing to note is that fish with an asterisk (*) next to their name will not be in the waters next month. Catch them while you can!
