Old School RuneScape: 5 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.

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.

Fly Fishing Targets
For free-to-play fans of the game, fly fishing can reasonably be used to train from level 20 all the way to level 99, assuming they are patient enough for this method. It does take feathers to do, but thankfully feathers aren't too hard to find nor are they too expensive. Trout and Salmon can be found at Barbarian Village and Lumbridge. While salmon can't be caught until players have a fishing level of 30, once this level is reached players can expect to make anywhere between 30,000 and 50,000 fishing experience per hour.

Best Member Quests
The best quests for leveling up fishing are available to RuneScape members only. Sorry free-to-play fans, you'll have to train another way. The options for quests members can choose to take on are quite massive and result in a combined 38,149 experience in fishing. These quests include Swan Song, Sea Slug, Heroes' Quest, Fishing Contest, Rum Deal, The Fremennik Trials, and Tai Bwo Wannai Trio, so paying members are spoiled for choice here.

Dress For Success
The best item to wear while fishing cannot be found in a traditional raid. To get each piece of the Angler's Outfit, players must play through the Fishing Trawler minigame. There is a 1/8 chance of getting a piece of the outfit the player does not already own each time they play the minigame. If all pieces of the outfit are worn, experience gained from fishing goes up 2.5% — it might not seem like much on the surface, but it definitely adds up over time.
