How to Fix Sons of The Forest Fish Trap Not Working Issue

When you try to catch fish in Sons of The Forest, usually, it takes a bit of time. So, if you experience that your Fish Trap is not working, then wait for a while and then check if that catches the fish. Even after waiting a certain period of time, if that doesn’t work, then now you may proceed to the following troubleshooting steps.

1. First of all, simply restart your game and check if the issue is resolved. If you are encountering this problem due to any bug, a simple restart can fix this issue.

2. We suggest sending your AI companion Kalvin to fish as he will be able to generate fishes and catch some of them.

3. Additionally, you might get more fish in small fish ponds than in open oceans and rivers. So, try placing your traps in lakes and ponds and check if you caught fish.

4. Also, make sure your game is updated to the latest version. The developers have already released a day-one patch to fix some previously reported issues, so try updating it to the latest version and check if the issue still persists.

5. Next, make sure you have placed your trap correctly in the water. If it is not in the water, then you won’t be able to catch any fish.

6. The next thing you need to make sure of is to check if you have placed the trap in the right location. There are multiple locations you can try to catch fish in Sons of The Forest so try moving it to multiple locations and check if you can catch the fish.

7. Make sure you have used the correct bait. In Sons of The Forest, you can use different types of bait to catch different fishes. Therefore, if you won’t be able to catch fish with your current bait, try switching to a different one.

8. Typically, like the real trap, you need to tie a bat to the trap to attract fish. You can choose from multiple bait options like spoiled meat, raw fish, or berries.

That’s everything you can try fixing Sons of The Forest fish trap not working issue.
