Largemouth Bass in Far Cry 5 can only be found in Faith’s Region. It’s not too far from the Hope County Jail, so you should be able to access this spot early in your run. From the jail, head to the river and travel east. It will wind a couple of times, but eventually you’ll come to a spot called Nolan’s Fly Shop. You’ll want to clear the Eden’s Gate cultists from this area. Out back of this location will be a spot where you can purchase boats, and that’s where you’ll go to catch all the Largemouth Bass you can carry.

This fishing spot is one of the harder locations, so it might not be a bad idea for you to buy a new fishing rod before you head out. If you’re low on cash, locating and looting all prepper stashes in Far Cry 5 is a good way to make some serious money.
