Besides farming and watering plants, breeding livestock, collecting gifts and mining, there are myriads of other activities you can do to relax and have fun. Fishing is a sub-game in the Stardew Valley game. You can go fishing in the ocean, rivers or Stardew Valley Lakes. Some of these fish are quite easy to catch, whereas others, are a little tricky and require some skills and high level of fishing experience.
The Sturgeon is one of the rarest, most difficult to catch and pricey fish in the game. Unlike other fish, the sturgeon can only be seen during winter or summer around the mountain lake and may sometimes appear on Wednesdays in krobo’s shop, or in front of Adventurer’s Guild. The Stardew Valley Lake is some distance away from the mine, and it houses a lot of amazing fish.

Those who have attained the eighth or ninth fishing level will find it easier to catch the sturgeon.
