Elder Scrolls Online - Fishing guide to Master Fisher - Master Angler

In this post you will find the list of fishes of the different zones, as well as maps indicating where to get them in these zones.
I did not try to map every single fishing hole on the map, but rather to provide at least a few fishing holes of each type of water on each map.
Update 2016: Zeni disabled OpenGL support, effectively removing Linux support.  Byebye ESO.
Update 2017: moved this page to Steemit
Update 2020: I got a windows laptop able to run the game… decided to do a little update with the “new” zones and moved the page back here : Steemit was a mistake.  
Update 2021: Adding new zone map while migrating - didn't really spend a lot of time on presentation ^^

Map conventions and baits:

ESO Fishing Menu
As you probably know, the type of bait is critical for your rate of success while fishing.  Read the maps as follow for optimal results:
ESO fishing Ocean

It is an Ocean, use Worms or Chubs

ESO fishing Lake

It is a Lake, use Guts or Minnows

ESO fishing River

It is a River, use Insect Parts or Shads

ESO fishing Foul

It is an Foul Water, use Crawlers or Fish Roe

ESO fishing unknown

I didn't throw a line here, plugin registered the hole, but I don't know what it is: use your intuition!

Perfect Roe

A huge change came to the game between orginial post in 2015 and update: what used to be useless fish can now be filetted into Perfect Roe. You should do that, and either sell or cook the perfect roe, it is needed for most good food reciepes

ESO Perfect Roe


Credits deserved very much here, to the tools that made this tutorial possible:
Rare Fish Tracker, By Katkat42, which make it easy to track what you had/need in each zone.
Votan’s Fisherman, By Votan, which allowed the creation of the maps  (And his filetting addon that saved my mouse)


The first three zones are islands, with only ocean, just walk around and you’ll find many more holes than on my maps!

When I got this achievment, it was bugged and could only be obtained using Chubs.  It has supposedly been fixed, but you never know…

Fishing in Cyro was the worst part of this achievement, mostly because as a member of the Ebonheart Pact, most fishing holes where in enemy territory. As the map tries to show:
– Foul waters are in the middle, near imperial city (I got all fishes from the same one)
– Ocean waters are all south (only found 2 spots, just north of the gate of Mnem, in Aldmery Dominion territory)
– Rivers and Lakes are plentiful near Drakelowe keep.
