The Fishing Guild (members-only) is a fenced area located in Hemenster, north of Ardougne, west of Seers' Village. To enter, players must have a Fishing level of 68; boosts from fishing potions, fish pies, or admiral pies can be used to boost one's level in order to enter the guild. However, players should note that if they log out while using one of the boosters, they will be teleported back outside the guild. It is advised to take stat-boosting items out of the bank before logging out, so that one can use the boost immediately and enter the guild again.

Aside from Catherby, the Fishing Guild is one of the most popular places to fish because of the nearby bank and obelisk. It is also one of the few guilds that is always filled with players, unlike the Crafting Guild that is often empty in members' worlds. For this reason, players who want to relax and socialise can visit the Fishing Guild for the perfect environment.

Outside the guild is the Master Fisher. Players can talk to him to receive fishing advice or to purchase a fishing Cape of Accomplishment for 99,000 coins.



The Fishing Guild is located south-west of Seers' Village and north of Ardougne, in the village of Hemenster. There are several transportation options:




The Fishing Guild contains three main buildings: the Entrance Hall, the Bank, and the Fishing Store.

They are explained in detail below.

Entrance Hall

Here is a range which players can use to cook food. It is fairly close to a bank. However, many players go to cook next to the bank in the Rogue's Den, since there is an everlasting fire next to the banker. A lobster pot, harpoon, and big fishing net spawn here. There is also a ladder that leads to the second floor, which contains beds for the employees.


Players can access their bank here. It is also connected to the fishing store. Notably, this is the closest bank to a shark fishing spot. This is also the closest bank to a lobster fishing spot.

Fishing Store

There is a fishing store run by a man named Roachey. He has a supply of Fishing bait (3 coins each) and Feathers (6 coins each).

He will buy and sell player-stocked raw or cooked cod, mackerel, bass, tuna, lobster and swordfish.

Players fishing on the docks of the fishing guild.


The Fishing Guild contains a small obelisk for recharging Summoning points. It is right at the entrance to the northern dock. This obelisk is useful for players who are using familiars such as the Granite crab, Ibis, or Granite Lobster to accompany them while fishing.


There are about 11 cage/harpoon (lobsters/tuna and swordfish) spots, and about 9 net/harpoon (bass, mackerel, cod, casket, plus junk/sharks) spots scattered around 2 docks. The northern dock is closest to the bank, whilst the southern dock is closest to the cooking range. There is also a man walking around on the northern dock. The northern dock usually has more cage/harpoon spots than the southern dock, whilst the southern dock usually has more net/harpoon spots, though there is a chance of the spots going on the opposite dock.

The Guild is ideal for players fishing sharks, lobsters, tunas and swordfish. The proximity of a bank and a range allows almost non-stop fishing, making it a great place to train.


  • As of 9 June 2009, the fence of the Fishing guild has become red-coloured on the minimap, and has a "Taunt-through" option on it. Using the said option gives a message saying "There's nothing to taunt". The character will then face towards the South-East. There is currently no reason as to why this happens or why the "Taunt-through railing" option is even there. It is said that Jagex used the same fence that is on the top floor of the Wizards' Tower, which allows you to taunt the caged lesser demon. This has been fixed.
  • There are ducks that swim around the docks which are only found in freshwater, yet there are sharks underneath the water which can only be found in saltwater.
  • The sharks must be Bull Sharks since they are the only type of shark which is able to move from saltwater to freshwater. On the map, there is a canal (by the coal trucks where the agility log is seen) that allows sharks to enter the Guild.
  • There is a Treasure Trail that leads into the fishing guild bank. The clue is "Blow a raspberry in the Fishing Guild bank. Beware of double agents! Equip an elemental shield, blue dragonhide chaps, and rune warhammer".
