It’s a new month, which means the debut of the new Animal Crossing: New Horizons June Bugs and Fish Guide. It is going to be all change this month dear reader, so I do hope you are ready.

In the Northern Hemisphere, it’s the summer time when the weather is fine, with your islands about to experience a burst of catchable activity across all categories. Meanwhile those in the Southern Hemisphere are going to be walking in a winter wonderland as snow will start to fall. So too will the number of Bugs, Fish, and Deep-Sea creatures that will be available over the next few months.

Things are starting to perk up fish wise in the Northern Hemisphere. Not all of the fish that are arriving and leaving are active at convenient times. So try to plan ahead. And as always, if you are struggling try to pack some bait.

All in all the pace is starting to pick up in the Northern Hemisphere. We are only just starting to get in to Summer and in the coming months there is going to be a boom of new creatures to catch. Especially when it comes to Bugs and Fish. So try to catch this month’s new arrivals whilst you still can. Otherwise you’ll be spending August rushing to catch everything! In the meantime, let’s see what is happening with our friends in the Southern Hemisphere.

A quiet one on the fish front this month. Only a handful arriving and only one leaving. This should give you plenty of time to try and make some snowmen and complete any seasonal recipes you missed last year.

Whilst the weather outside might not be perfect for swimming, at least all you have to worry about at this stage is only a couple Deep-Sea Creatures leaving and only one new one arriving. Either way, they are there all day, so you’ll have plenty of time to catch them.
