Farm Pond with Crab Pots

Farm Pond refers to any of the bodies of water found on the player's farm.

On all maps, Crab Pots may be placed in the Farm Pond and they will act as if placed in any other fresh water source. All ponds can also be used to refill Watering Cans and to irrigate Rice Shoots.

All other details of the pond are highly dependent upon the specific Farm Map:[1]

  • On the Standard Farm, only trash can be caught when fishing in the pond.
  • On the Riverland Farm:
    • 70% of the time, players will catch town river fish, i.e., fish that are found in Pelican Town.
    • 30% of the time, players will catch pond fish, i.e., fish that are found in the Cindersap Forest pond.
  • On the Forest Farm:
    • 5% of the time (modified by daily Luck), players will catch Woodskip.
    • 45% of the time, players will catch pond fish, i.e., fish that are found in the Cindersap Forest pond.
    • Otherwise, players will only catch trash.
  • On the Hilltop Farm:
    • 50% of the time, players will catch forest river fish, i.e., fish that are found in the Cindersap Forest river.
    • 50% of the time, players will only catch trash.
  • On the Wilderness Farm:
    • 35% of the time, players will catch lake fish, i.e., fish that are found in The Mountain lake.
    • 65% of the time, players will only catch trash.
  • On the Four Corners Farm:
  • The large pond in the southwest quadrant is similar to the Forest Farm pond: it provides a 50% chance to catch forest pond fish, i.e., fish that are found in the Cindersap Forest pond.
  • Only trash can be caught in the small ponds in the other three quadrants.
