First of all, this fish can only be found between the hours of 12 pm and 2 am. Plan your activities with this in mind, so you don’t waste the first six hours of the day. Also make sure to bring along some Bait to make the whole process a bit quicker than usual.

Secondly, it has to be raining for the Walleye to become available. Players can try their luck and hope for rain, or they can get their hands on a Rain Totem. This is a unique consumable item that greatly increases the chances of rain on the next day.

And finally, the Stardew Valley Walleye can only be caught in the Fall and Winter. If neither of those seasons have come around yet, then maybe prioritize some other fish like the Sturgeon or the Catfish.

But once all of these conditions have been met, head to either the Cindersap Forest Pond and River, Mountain Lake or the Pelican Town River to catch the fish.

Alternatively if you chose the Forest Farm as your map at the start of the game, you can simply use the pond in your own home. This is easily the most convenient source of Walleye in the entire game, but it requires you to lock yourself into a particular type of farmland.
