OSRS: Pro Tips For Leveling Fishing

Leveling skills in Old School RuneScape can be a chore, but this guide will provide all the tips you need to start fishing like a pro. Given that it has recently logged record numbers of concurrent players, Old School RuneScape is still a remarkably valid option when it comes to scratching that MMO itch. Players diving into the game for the first time since the early 2000s may not remember, but fishing is a vital skill within the game for not only making coins but for potentially raising the cooking skill to make tasty (and increasingly effective) healing items.

It's definitely safe to say that Old School Runescape isn't exactly known for its fun fishing mechanics. Still, Fishing is an important skill in this old school MMORPG so new players will need to know the best ways to level it up — even returning veterans might need a refresher on the best ways to go about accomplishing this. While leveling is harder for free-to-play players, there are still some incredibly valid strategies for both them and paying members to use.

Sea Slugs

Not all players want to spend money on the game, but unfortunately, the fastest way to level fishing early in RuneScape is for pay-to-play members only. The Sea Slug quest requires 30 Firemaking but is worth it for just how fast the quests it eventually leads to help level players up. By the end of the Sea Slug questline, players will be raised all the way to level 24 if they start at level 1 in the fishing skill, so this is an obvious and crucial get when players are raising it.

Shrimp And Anchovies

There are no golden fishing rods in Old School RuneScape but there are fishing nets! Fishing nets are particularly handy to beginners training fishing skills as they don't require a consumable item of any kind to use. This makes it easier to not take pauses during fishing, which in turn helps players gain experience faster.

The best fish to start catching when training early on are Shrimp and Anchovies. Some good fishing spots include south of the Al Kharid bank, near the Fishing Tutor, and south of the Draynor Village bank. Players must catch 447 shrimp to reach level 15 where they will then be able to catch anchovies. After catching 139 anchovies, players will reach level 20.

Barbarian Fishing

Barbarian Fishing sounds like something animal lovers would get highly upset about but is the most efficient way to level up fishing for pay-to-play players of Old School Runescape. It requires 30 agility and 30 strength to be able to do. Leaping trout, Leaping fish, and Leaping sturgeon are all available to catch from this method. Plus, it also helps players gain more agility and strength as they fish.
