The Best Fishing Games for People to Play on PC

Fishing games have been around for quite some time. In fact, hunting games, in general, have been around since the beginning. Think of the infamous Duck Hunter; people adored that game when it was released in 1984.

With high-end PCs in many gamers’ homes, many are looking for the best fishing games to play.

Here are the seven best fishing games to play on PC.

7. Far Cry 6

We are not kidding when we say Far Cry 6 is one of the better games for fishing that you can play on the PC. With ray-tracing making the game look absolutely beautiful, one can only imagine how realistic the water and fish look.

Far Cry 6 may have been meant to be a game for exploring and its storyline, but the fishing in this title is elite compared to others.

6. Red Dead Redemption 2

Before getting into designated fishing games, we have to also mention Red Dead Redemption 2 on our list. Not only does RDR2 look amazing and have a vast open world, but it has one of the best fishing mechanics, even better than games that are primarily about fishing. RDR2 even has realistic-looking fish that swim away and struggle with realism when you catch them.

5. Fishing Sim World: Pro Tour

Fishing Sim World: Pro Tour was released in 2018 and is the perfect fishing simulator for those who want to kick back and enjoy catching fish. The game is currently available on Steam and has a 7/10 rating. Play as some of the top fishermen in the world in this unique simulator.

Fishing Sim World: Pro Tour is hands down one of the better fishing games that players can play on PC.

4. Professional Fishing

Who doesn’t love a free-to-play game? Professional Fishing is one of the best fishing games you can find on Steam and is completely free. The game is another modern take on the popular sport, as players can fish in various spots and try to catch various fish.

Professional Fishing is a perfect game for those looking to fish on a budget, making it a great fishing game to play on PC.

3. Fishing: Barents Sea

Fishing: Barents Sea is a fresh take on the fishing games. As said in the name, this title not only gives players a chance to fish but also takes them out into the high seas. You know how different deep-sea fishing can be if you are a fisherman. This is an excellent chance for people to explore a different style of fishing and gameplay.

Fishing: Barents Sea is the perfect game for PC gamers who need a chance to relax and catch some saltwater fish.

2. Fishing: North Atlantic

Another fishing game that focuses on deep-sea fishing is Fishing: North Atlantic. This game, though, puts players in the water of Eastern Canada (Nova Scotia, etc). The game is made by the same developers as the Barents Sea, so the mechanics are similar. The game is a tad bit pricey though on Steam, so beware when looking into it.

Fishing: North Atlantic is still a great addition to the world of fishing games and is great to play if you own a PC.

1. Ultimate Fishing Simulator
