For a more comprehensive list of every creature in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, we have a full list of all 80 fish to catch, including shadow sizes, and a list of all 80 bugs to catch, with tips on tracking down the handful of rare ones.
Here are all the new fish and bugs you can catch in Animal Crossing: New Horizons in July. We’ve sorted by bells so you know what to focus on if you’re waiting for Flick or C.J. to visit, but if you’re a completionist, you’ll want to catch them all!
The blue marlin returns after it went out of season in May. Along with the napoleonfish, the blue marlin may have increased chances of appearing when it’s raining–but for the blue marlin specifically, you can only catch it off the pier, so be on the lookout!
Summer is beetle season on Northern Hemisphere islands. June introduced a handful, and there’s even more in July. This month also brings a couple series firsts, namely the blue weevil beetle and the earth-boring dung beetle. A ton of this month’s beetles spawn on coconut trees, or palm trees, so if you don’t have a ton on your island, now’s a good time to start planting!
There are no newcomers to the Southern Hemisphere’s seasonal bugs and fish lists in July.
