Bugs and Fish To Catch Before June in Animal Crossing New Horizons

Be sure to catch them before May ends

One of the most interesting things about Animal Crossing New Horizons is how up to date it is with current events. With its May Day Event, Nature Day event and the Museum Day event, it has consistently shown how the game blends the real world with the virtual world. Continuing this streak of realism, ACNH also changes the bugs and fish availability based on seasons. In this guide, you will find out which bugs and fish are leaving your island after May.
