How To Catch Piranhas In Animal Crossing New Horizons

Get your hands on the Piranha

Apart from the Great White Shark, another fish that players can catch from the month of June is the Piranha. For those in the Northern hemisphere, the Piranha can be caught during the months of June to September. Here’s a quick guide on how to catch a Piranha in Animal Crossing New Horizons.

Catching the Piranha in Animal Crossing New Horizons

As mentioned before, this fish can be caught in the months of June, July, August and September. It will spawn in the river from 9 pm to 4 am and then between 9 am to 4 pm. So there is plenty of time to catch the Piranha in Animal Crossing New Horizons. It also has a small shadow so if you see one in the river, it might just be the Piranha.

To catch it, all you have to do is get fish bait and as usual, throw it into the river. When the shadow of a fish appears, let it bite the bait and then reel it in. This isn’t a very rare fish so you might just catch it in your early attempts. You can even try fishing on Mystery islands. A Nook Miles ticket will take you there in a jiffy.

The Piranha will sell for 2,500 Bells at the Nook’s Cranny which is quite a good sum.
If your island is in the Southern Hemisphere, note that this fish will appear from December to March.

That’s all about the Piranha in ACNH. For more details about other creatures and tips to make the perfect island, keep reading our Animal Crossing New Horizons guides.
