Easier Fishing (Standalone) (1.1) 1.1a

Easier Fishing Standalone

  1. Xylia
    The Easier Fishing Mod, officially uploaded to the Mod Repository.

    The original mod was created by @steffjes and is located here:


    But it was never officially uploaded to the Mod Repo that I am aware of, so I'm uploading it (and also, the original creator has not been on the forums since July).

    If there's any sort of problem with this, a moderator can remove the mod.

    This version of the mod is updated for Stardew Valley 1.1.

    This mod does not require any API tools, and is a stand-alone mod.


    1). Navigate to \Stardew Valley\Content\Data\
    2). Rename Fish.xnb to something like Fish_old.xnb or Fish_Backup.xnb or whatever.
    3). Download and open this .zip.
    4). Choose which .xnb file you want: easier_Fish.xnb or super_easier_Fish.xnb.
    5). Copy which file you want.
    6). Paste it into \Stardew Valley\Content\Data\
    7). Rename it to Fish.xnb. <--- VERY IMPORTANT, Your game will crash upon fishing otherwise.
    8). Enjoy!

    This mod makes most fish significantly easier, but does not remove the fishing mini-game entirely. Some of the Legendary Fish might be mildly difficult still, but much more reasonable than vanilla.

    The super easier version makes it much, much easier.

    As a very unskilled fisher in Stardew Valley, this has made fishing finally possible and much more relaxed for me. Great mod!

    Does exactly as advertised, much to the benefit of the impatient and unskilled (myself).
