What are Fishing Hotspots in New World and Where to Find Them?

Want to get the best possible output from fishing in New World? Fishing Hotspots are exactly where you want to be! These places improve your chances of catching just the fish you were looking for, from uncommon to legendary.

New World packs a massive total of 80 Fishing Hotspots, out of which 27 are Broad, 25 are Rare, and 28 are Secret. By offering faster “bite” speed, Fishing Hotspots have the edge over the rest of the water bodies they are found in. The only catch is that just like a Mining node, Hotspots, too, can be depleted, and you’ll have to wait for them to respawn.

It doesn’t matter if you have to undertake fishing for a quest or it’s just something you enjoy; fishing cannot be ignored. Therefore, I have compiled a region-wise list of every Fishing Hotspot in New World, so you don’t have to wander in the vast wilderness of Aeternum.
