-Why is it indicated as obtainable in winter when it only appears when it rains? Doomish (talk) 19:17, 5 July 2016

If I'm going to take for granted the written part about using Rain Totems in Winter, I guess that's why. KLaurence (talk) 09:52, 16 May 2019 (BST)

Inclusion of maps in the "Found in" row

As a suggestion, should we add Riverlands Farm and Hill-top Farm below a new category called "All Seasons"? I've seen other Riverlands and Hill-top Farm-exclusive fishes' pages and they don't contain it in the "Found in" row, but I've figured out that if we added these to the row, it would be great.

I'm not totally sure I understand what you mean. Do you mean to add rows in the infobox for Riverlands Farm and Hill-Top Farms? What about Wilderness Farm? And why below "Seasons'?
There are no fish exclusive to any farm, so this is confusing to me as well. Can you elaborate? margotbean (talk) 17:40, 16 May 2019 (BST)
Sorry for the confusion. I visually meant this:

Found in:  Spring Fall:

River (Town+Forest) {Riverlands Farm and Hill-top Farm} • Forest Pond (Forest Farm)
 Summer:
Secret WoodsWitch's Swamp
 Winter:
??? (Talk page note: I don't know the maps you can catch Catfishes in raining winter)


I meant to add the Riverlands, Forest (another addition), and Hill-top Farms (farms with waters that are equivalent to the town river, the pond, and the forest river, respectively) next to the "Found in" category (previously below "All Seasons" since I thought you can catch Catfishes in these maps all year long, but now below "Spring and Fall" since I have thought that they will still be season-exclusive like town+forest river and Cindersap Forest pond.) Since Catfishes can't be caught in the lake which the Wilderness Farm's waters are equivalent to, it's not included.
OK, I see what you're saying. Unfortunately, that's way too wide for the infobox. I think seasonal info should be kept in the "Season" cell as well, as compact as possible. Elaborating in the body of the article is a good thing.
I don't know if you can catch a Catfish in the Secret Woods or Witch's Swamp in Winter if you use a Rain Totem, that would be a good test to run. On the non-standard farms, my assumption is that it can be caught whenever it's raining (Spring, Summer, Fall, or Winter), but that would be another good test to run. So, let's get the info correct first, then concern ourselves with formatting after that. Good?  :) margotbean (talk) 17:27, 17 May 2019 (BST)
