Where to Find Voltfin Trout in Tears of the Kingdom

Voltfin Trout are easily some of the most useful fish in Tears of the Kingdom. Unfortunately, they also happen to be some of the most difficult to find.

There is currently only one known location of Voltfin Trout in Tears of the Kingdom, and unfortunately, it’s not the easiest to get to. These fish are definitely worth the effort of tracking down, however, and if you happen to be exploring in this area anyway, then you may as well stop in and catch yourself some trout:

  • Hebra Plunge Lake

This guide will be updated if more Voltfin Trout locations are discovered, but for now, the Hebra Plunge lake is the only area where players can find them.

If you look at the map below, you’ll notice two lakes side-by-side between the Hebra Mountains and the Tabantha Frontier; the oddly shaped lake on the right is the Hebra Plunge lake.

It’s unknown whether or not the developers will add more Voltfin Trout locations to the game in the future, but for now, just make sure you fish up as many as possible in Hebra Plunge lake before moving on!

Also, in addition to Voltfin Trout, you can also find many other types of fish and even a few Korok Seeds at Hebra Plunge as well; if you happen to be in the area, don’t waste your trip!
