Fishing

Fishing is used to catch fish, special items and junk which are deposited in the bank. If the Bank becomes full while Fishing, Fishing will continue but any extra items will be lost.

Fish can be cooked for use as food during Combat or Thieving.

At certain levels, upgrades to the fishing pole used are available in the Skill Upgrades section of the Shop. Upgraded fishing poles reduce the time required to catch fish. Raising Fishing to level 99 will unlock the Fishing Skillcape for purchase from the Shop. The Fishing Skillcape doubles the amount of items caught.

Using Fisherman's potions reduces the chance to catch junk by 3-12%.

Fishing Areas

There are 8 Fishing Areas, with different fish located in each Fishing Area. Each area has different chances to obtain junk or special items instead of fish.

The Barbarian Fishing area is unlocked by wearing the Barbarian Gloves. Catching fish in the Barbarian Fishing Area will give Strength and Fishing skill experience. This Strength experience is also affected by the experience bonus from Gold Emerald Ring.

The Secret Area is unlocked by reading the Message in a Bottle in the Bank.

Fish

As the player's Fishing level increases, new fish that give more experience will become available to catch. Leaping Trout, Leaping Salmon, and Leaping Broad Fish, will train Strength when caught, giving 10, 15, and 25 experience respectively. Raw Skeleton Fish can be buried for 3 Prayer points each. Raw Magic Fish can be eaten to restore health without cooking. Leaping Trout, Leaping Salmon, Leaping Broad Fish, Raw Skeleton Fish, Raw Magic Fish, Raw Blowfish, and Raw Poison Fish cannot be cooked.
