Genshin Impact offers a variety of activities that players can do in the game to get free rewards, hoard resources, or pass time as there is a lack of quality end-game content. One of the most recently added activities is Fishing. Sadly, players cannot take on the activity from the get-go.

Catch an Ornamental Fish in the Stormbearer Mountains
The Ornamental Fish are the ones with erratic movement, jumping up and down while the other fish calmly swim around.
