Animal Crossing New Horizons: September Fish Guide

Welcome back everyone to yet another fish guide for Animal Crossings New Horizon. It seems like it was just yesterday I was typing up the fish guide for August, yet here we are with just a handful of days left in the month. So over the next few hours from when you see this go up, you’ll be seeing our bug guides and sea creatures guides also appear for the month of September. We hope these guide updates can help you be able start planning when and where you have to go on your islands to do the best fishing and bug catching you can.

Just a quick reminder before we get into everything here, we have started a YouTube gaming review channel where we’ll also be doing tips and tricks videos and more. Please stop by the channel by following this link and smash that subscribe button and then share it around everywhere! Once we hit 200 subscribers we’ll be doing a small celebration giveaway of a $10 digital gift card for one lucky winner but we won’t be able to do that until you guys get us up to 200 subscribers! The more subscribers we have, the more we’ll be able to do on the channel which means more and better content for you.

Now as usual we will be dividing this up between Northern and Southern hemisphere and first putting in what’s coming in September and then ending each section with what leaves at the end of September. If you want to know what leaves in just a couple days be sure to check out all of our August Guides (hint there are a TON of bugs leaving the North so catch them NOW). We will be listing the fish in the following way:

So there’s all the fish we can expect to see come and go this month. There’s a good amount of change for September; however, most of what the North is getting is stuff we’ve seen before but there are a few new things for me to get for the museum so I am excited about that. My big thing now is going to be getting the Mahi-Mahi and the Giant Trevally before they disappear at the end of October. Let us know in the comments if these guides have been helpful to you and how you’re doing on your Criterpediea’s.
