Catherby is a prime fishing location for low to high-level anglers; however, it is only accessible to members. There are a wide variety of salt-water fish as well as a range and bank within a few seconds walk. It is one of the most populated RuneScape locations due to its rich source of fish. Catherby is also the home to a farming allotment, herb patch, flower patch, and fruit tree patch.
You may now teleport to this location upon completion of the Lunar Diplomacy Quest.

Special Attractions
Fishing spots

There are shrimp, sardine, herring, anchovies, mackerel, cod, tuna, lobster, bass, swordfish, and shark in the Catherby fishing area. It is quite popular because it's only five seconds away from a range, and ten seconds away from a bank.

Arhein's Boat

Stowing away on this boat is the only way to gain access to Keep Le Faye, which is south-east of Catherby. To board this boat you must 'Hide' in the crate behind the Candle shop.

Farming Patches
Zybez RuneScape Help's Screenshot of a Farming Patch

There are two different farming areas in Catherby. The first is the allotment, which contains the flower patch, herb patch, and a patch to plant fruit and vegetables. This area, north of the bank, also has a farming store, which sells items required to farm with. The second area contains a fruit tree patch, where you can obviously grow your fruit trees - located near the fishing spots.

White Wolf Mountain

If you haven't completed the Fishing Contest quest, you will need to navigate your way through these mountains to get to Taverley. Be wary whilst traveling through this icy terrain, as there are Wolves (level 29), White Wolves (level 38), and Big wolf (level 73), waiting to hunt down passers-by. Ice Giants (level 49), and Ice Warriors (level 53), also find their home in the mountain.

Charter Ships

Certain ships at ports throughout RuneScape now have the ability to charter you to a number of locations. The sailers also stock certain items that they've picked up along their travels throughout RuneScape that you are able to buy. The Catherby charter ship departs at the Catherby pier near the bank, to Brimhaven (480gp), Karamja (480gp), Mos Le Harmless (625gp), Port Khazard (1,600gp), Port Phasmatys (3,500gp), Port Sarim (1,000gp), Shipyard (1,600gp), Tyras Camp (3,200gp). To halve the cost of these charter ships, wear a ring of charos (a)


Fishing Contest: Just north-east of Catherby, is the quest's start and end point. Upon completion of the quest, you will be able to use the passage under White Wolf Mountain, which leads to Taverley.

Ice giant (level-53) More information
Examine: He's got icicles in his beard.
Notes: Ice giants are always found with Ice warriors.
Unicorn (level-15) More information
Examine: Horse with a horn.
Notes: The white Unicorns are not the best way for members to obtain unicorn horns for herblore. The black unicorns in the wilderness are the best, due to larger amounts of them.
