OSRS Fishing Training – Fastest Experience Training

Old School RuneScape Fastest Experience Training:

Levels 1–33: Questing

Completing Sea Slug, Fishing Contest, the Pirate Pete subquest of Recipe for Disaster, Tai Bwo Wannai Trio and The Fremennik Trials will grant level 33

Levels 20–47/58: Fly fishing

You will need a fly fishing rod and feathers to catch the fish. Use the fishing spot in Shilo Village which is nearby a bank, or use the spot in Barbarian Village which has a permanent fire nearby

Levels 47–99: Drift net fishing

Drift net fishing is an activity in the underwater of Fossil Island that requires completion of Bone Voyage to access.

This is the most efficient way to train both Fishing and Hunter at the same time

For optimal experience rates, a merfolk trident or (uncharged) trident of the seas is used to chase fish shoal into drift nets and stamina potions are used to restore and maintain run energy

Levels 58–99: Barbarian Fishing

This method offers small amounts of passive Agility and Strength experience

The best spot for Barbarian Fishing is at the pond next to the Otto’s Grotto. Players can quickly get there by using a games necklace or Grouping teleport to Barbarian Assault and running south-west

Players must complete a portion of Barbarian Training to be able to catch leaping fish. Having level 30 Agility and Strength is required for catching leaping salmon, and level 45 in both for leaping sturgeon

Levels 71–99: 2-tick harpooning swordfish/tuna

The fishing spots for 2-tick harpooning are located in the north-western part of Piscarilius, just west of the bank. Players can quickly get there by using the The fisher’s flute teleport on the Kharedst’s memoirs (requires completion of The Queen of Thieves) and running north-west
