Animal Crossing: New Horizons has many different types of fish in its game. One of the most rare fish to catch is the Golden Trout, which can be sold for 15,000 Bells at Nook's Cranny.

Players can catch Golden Trout in the clifftop rivers of the island. Clifftop rivers can be found on the second or third levels of cliffs. If you don't have any cliffs or clifftop rivers, you can form them by accessing the Island Designer app on your NookPhone. After making a river on a cliff, you should create a waterfall that is connected to one of the river mouths of the island.

After developing a clifftop river, players should then make several fish baits. Fish bait can be obtained through digging up one manila clam in the sand and building it at your work station. It is recommended to make 30 to 50 packs of fish bait in order to catch a Golden Trout.

Golden Trout can be caught during March, April, May, September, October, and November. This type of fish is spawned during 4 p.m. local time to 9. a.m. local time. After catching the Golden Trout, players can donate this fish to Blathers, or sell it to C.J. for 22,500 Bells.
