Minecraft AFK Fish Farm Explained
Fishing isn’t the most popular feature in Minecraft but it is one of the most useful ones. Once you get to know the different loot you can obtain by fishing, you’ll start fishing immediately. And you should, fishing gives the player a much-needed boost in the game which can be used to beat the dragon faster.
Fishing has been a part of Minecraft since the start, but back then it was worthless to fish as the chances of you getting fish were really slim. Apart from fish which can only be used as food, other stuff was also added to the loot table for the player.
Now you can get a lot of stuff just from fishing, from leather gear to name tags, and much more. The game rewards patience and technique by making the player fish in certain conditions.
Soon players realized that there was a better and faster way to get all the juicy items from fishing, and AFK fishing was introduced to the game!
What is AFK fishing?
As the name suggests, AFK fishing is fishing whilst your away from your keyboard. To put it in simple words, AFK fishing will give you loot without having to worry about sitting near the PC.
Many smart Redstone wizards created their own version of the process, each iteration being better than the one before. Soon players had all the rare items they would ever need in the game, and you could too!

When you fish there is a probability of you either getting stuff from the three categories mentioned above. The fish category has fish. The treasure category has rare items like nametags, saddles, enchanted or non-enchanted fishing rods, mending books, bows, nautilus shells, etc.
The junk category has bones, strings, enchanted rods, water bottles, bowls, leather, ink sacs, etc.
How to fish AFK?
Not a lot is required to build an AFK Fish farm actually, and there are many videos online explaining the process of building one from scratch, so0 do check them out.
Once you have your AFK fish farm ready, depending upon what the design was, you’d need an auto-clicker or a regular mouse will do the trick.
Advantages of AFK fish farming!
As we said earlier fishing can be a really useful process for Minecraft and hence we built an AFK fish farm. But what can we expect from fishing in the rivers?
Well, you can expect a lot! Enchanting your gear, finding diamonds and netherite is a long tedious process and we know something will happen and this gear will break. So to fix this issue we use the mending enchantment which repairs our gear in exchange for some EXP.
Elytra should always have a mending enchantment on them as they are really rare to find. The same goes for your netherite gear. But getting these books is hard, you can only obtain one from trading with villagers and fishing! And fishing is what we’ll do to get this fantastic enchantment.
Apart from that, you can also get valuables like enchanted bows and fishing rods. Nametags are really rare in the game, but with fishing, we get them in plenty, now you can actually keep a pet!
Nautilus shells are needed for the heart of the sea which is like an underwater beacon. These shells can be found in shipwrecks and treasure chests, but you can easily obtain them by fishing. I think I’ve made my point clear, you should always make use of fishing as it will only make your playthrough easier.

Minecraft: How To Make An AFK Fishing Farm
In Minecraft, you can do pretty much anything, including fish. Oftentimes, fishing is overlooked though; it takes too long and the rare items are hard to come by. Fortunately, you can make your own AFK fishing farm.
Making an AFK fishing farm is incredibly easy, and the rewards are definitely worth it. In addition to getting fish, you will gain a lot of experience. Instead of spending a long time fishing, make this AFK fishing farm!

This design was inspired by YouTuber Illuminado. You can check out his tutorial for the farm here. This setup works in the 1.16 Minecraft update, however, as with every Minecraft update, it differs from older versions of the farm. The 1.16 update limits the amount of treasure you will receive from the AFK fishing farm, but you will still get plenty of fish and experience.
Materials Needed To Make An AFK Fishing Farm
To make the AFK fishing farm, you will need the following materials:
- Bucket of water
- Two note blocks
- Iron trapdoor
- Iron weighted pressure plate
- Two chests
The second note block is a temporary block and won't be included in the final design, so you can substitute it with any block of your choosing instead.
All of this material is pretty easy to craft. You should be able to craft each item pretty early on in the game.
How To Make The AFK Fishing Farm
The process of making this AFK fishing farm is quite simple, so let's go over how to do it.
- Dig a 3x1 hole and place your double chest on the left side. In the image above, an additional row was cleared so you can see the setup.
- In the empty space, connect a hopper to the chests, and then place a single fence block on top. If you keep interacting with the chest or hopper, holding down shift will allow you to place items without interaction.
- Dig an additional hole directly in line with the hopper.
- Use your water bucket and place it directly on top of the fence. This should waterlog the fence as the excess water flows into the hole.
- Place a note block in line with the hole. Use a placeholder block and stack on top of the note block.
- Take the pressure plate and place it at the bottom ridge of the placeholder block. Check out the image below for placement. Once in position, destroy the placeholder block.
- Put the pressure plate on top of the fence post.
- That's all! Now, you have your very own AFK fishing farm.
To use this farm, all you have to do is equip a fishing rod and hold down the right mouse button while aiming at the note block. This will open the trapdoor and essentially put you in a 'loop' of fishing. Any caught fish will drop into the hopper that leads to the chest.
To make this farm AFK, you can either keep your mouse held down or download an auto clicker. It's also possible to just place a book or use a piece of tape to hold down your mouse.
Pressing F3 + T while in Minecraft will reload the game to refresh textures. If you do this while holding down the right mouse button, the game will reload and you will be automatically clicking. Doing this while fishing will essentially enable an auto-click. To end this, just click the right mouse button again.
Tips For AFK Fishing
Going AFK in Minecraft may sound counter-intuitive. With this fishing farm though, placement is important. There are plenty of other farms in Minecraft that require you to be nearby. For example, a gunpower/Creeper farm requires you to be nearby so that the Creepers will spawn.
Waiting around a Creeper farm isn't the most exciting, which is where our AFK fishing farm comes in handy. Building this farm nearby will earn you fish, experience, and gunpowder. Basically, place your AFK fishing farm near other farms that only work when you are nearby.
As mentioned above, the 1.16 update completely changed the way AFK fishing works. With the update, you will only be able to receive treasure from water sources that are at least 5x5x4. Don't let this discourage you though! Our simple AFK fishing farm may not get you rare loot, but you still gain experience without even moving.
Additionally, fish is helpful when trading with villagers. The fisherman villager will trade emeralds for fish, and this farm will give you tons of it. You can use this fish to eat, or trade for emeralds. Trading with villagers gives you some experience as well!
Now, you know all about a basic AFK fishing farm. This farm is a perfect beginner project; it's not too hard and can introduce you to the world of Minecraft farms. After building this, head over to our guide on automatic farms that everyone needs.

Fish farming is an easy method of catching large quantities of fish and other items (junk and treasure) by fishing. Most AFK (away from keyboard) designs involve right-clicking an iron door with tripwire above it, causing fish caught to flow into a hopper and then into a collection chest.
AFK Automatic Fish Farming
Pre-1.16, automatic fish farming involves right-clicking a door with tripwire above it and hoppers for collection. It’s a good idea to use an automatic fishing rod dropper to supply new fishing rods when the previous one breaks. The ideal rod is Lure III, Luck of the Sea III, Unbreaking III and Mending I. For some AFK farms, it is required to hold down a button or key. For these, they can only be truly AFK if it is held down by something besides a person.
Snapshot 20w12a changed how fishing worked. Now, in order to get treasure loot, the bobber will need to be in a 5x5x4 area of water, air, or Lily Pads.. This broke all old AFK fishing designs. The current designs use a timer to approximate how long it'll take to catch a fish, and then forcefully cause the player to reel it in via trapdoors activated on a redstone timer. These aren't as fast as the pre-1.16 designs.
Snapshot 20w49a added the Sculk Sensor[upcoming:JE 1.18], which powered a new generation of AFK fishing farms. A design by Rays Works uses skulk sensors to detect a bobber sinking into the water when loot bites, triggering the sensor and forcefully causing the player to reel the bobber in via trapdoors activated by a skulk sensor.
Note: None of these work in Bedrock Edition, due to how tripwires and doors work. Mojang also does not want to allow AFK fishing in Bedrock Edition. As such, most AFK fishing designs involve exploiting bugs that get fixed in the next update.

This one is specifically noted as working in Bedrock edition.
1.17 (Not available in survival)
- Rays Works Design
This is a basic design using hoppers to automatically collect fish while being very quick and simple to build.
Here is a quick run-through of the fishing mechanics:
- Time: A time between 5-30 seconds is chosen each time you cast a line. This can be decreased with Lure I, II, and III, with each level of Lure decreasing the wait time by 5 seconds. If the end time is less then 0 seconds, a new time is picked.
- Enchantments: Lure decreases wait time. It decreases the amount of time needed to get a catch. Luck of the sea brings in more treasure. See Fishing for more info.
- Open Water: While you can technically fish in a single water block, you cannot catch items from the "treasure" list unless you're fishing in "open water": At least 2 blocks of water in all directions around the bobber (that is, a 5x5 space centered on the bobber), and 2 blocks deep, the whole area open to the sky. Water plants and suchlike count as "water" for this purpose, and lily pads atop the water are okay.
- Safety: If you have a decent territory fenced off and lit up, you can choose or make large pool there. Early on, it may be easier to make a safe "fishing stand" over an ocean or river, where you can fish but monsters can't reach you or shoot at you. Don't forget a roof to fend off phantoms!
So here are the main ways to speed up non-AFK fishing.
- Use an enchanted fishing rod, spending XP on a fishing rod may seem useless, but it is not, you can get amazing loot from fishing. There are 4 enchantments useful for fishing rods: Mending, Unbreaking, Lure, and Luck of the Sea. You can also catch enchanted fishing rods as "treasure" -- they will be fairly damaged, but as soon as you find one with Mending, you can use that (it will heal itself as you fish), and combine other rods with it as you collect the various enchantments. Eventually you will end up with a "god rod": Mending, Unbreaking III, Luck of The Sea III, Lure III. Even if the last couple of anvil combinations are expensive, it's worthwhile, because once you have the full set of enchantments, you'll never need to use the anvil on that rod again.
- Mending + Unbreaking
- Mending can be useful because you get enough XP from fishing to keep the rod at full durability with just Mending. Unbreaking simply stops the rod from breaking as fast, so it will require less mending and leave more experience for you.
- Luck Of The Sea
- Simple, it gets you more treasure and less junk.
- Lure decreases the pre-determined wait time (5-30 seconds) by 5 seconds with each level (minimum 0). With Lure III, catches will be immediate half the time, and up to 15 seconds the rest of the time.
- As with every other item with durability in the game, you can combine them in an Anvil or in your inventory to gain more durability. With Mending, a fishing rod will heal with ordinary use -- like other Mending tools, it will be healed if you gain experience in any way, while holding it in either your main hand or offhand... and of course it's in hand while you're gaining experience from fishing!
5 best farms to make in Minecraft
In Minecraft, a player's efficiency and skill is based on how much the player can do without doing anything at all.
Many farm plans have been developed for Minecraft players to collect endless materials in-game. In games like Minecraft, automation is key. The more a player can attain without doing much more than opening a chest or clicking a button.
The following are some of the best Minecraft farms for players to access unlimited resto unlimited no cost or effort.
Best Minecraft farms
#5 — AFK Fish Farm
Although AFK fish farms no longer work in the more recent Minecraft versions, players who tend to frequent Minecraft versions before 1.16 may still find this beneficial to the game.
AFK fishing is one of the most overpowered farms in the game as they can get players incredible amounts of XP, enchanted books, countless fish, and more.
Saddles and nametags are found quite frequently found during AFK fishing, making them a lot less rare than they usually are, as well.
#4 — Mob Farm
Whether they be for a specific mob or multiple types, Mob farms are a perfect way to collect a lot of a specific mob drop without risk or putting the player in harm's way.
Mob farms can collect stacks upon stacks of loot from mobs in just a few hours, making them extremely efficient. Another great thing to note about mob farms is that they make mobs spawn a lot less frequently in areas, as the majority of the ones for the area will spawn in the farm itself.
#3 — Automatic Crop Farm
Automatic crop farms are perfect for players who want to cut the harvesting period to almost nothing. All drops are released by releasing water over fully grown crops, and they get neatly deposited in chests at the end of the row.
This is a perfect farm for players who want to cut the time they spend harvesting in half, as the players no longer need to harvest the crops; all they have to do, instead, is plant them and wait for them to grow before reaping the rewards.
#2 — XP Farm
There are so many different methods for making functioning XP farms, and they all work really well.
The main reason why players created the idea for an XP farm was to quicken the enchanting process. Although killing mobs individually doesn't give the player too much XP, that number can increase tenfold when the player takes out multiple mobs at a time.
These are some of the most frequently made farms in the game, and for a good reason.
#1 — Iron Farm
The best farm out there for Minecraft players to create is most definitely an iron farm.
Mining is a thing of the past when players make this iron farm, as it can produce up to three hundred iron ingots per hour. Having it running in the background while the player builds or maintains their land is a perfect way to rack up hundreds of iron without doing anything.
This is the ultimate farm for players wanting to create a full beacon with iron blocks.

5 best AFK farms in Minecraft
Building farms is one of the most common activities in Minecraft. Players can obtain almost any resource using farms. Out of all farm types, AFK farms are among the most efficient in Minecraft.
Players can leave their computers or devices on, and the farm will continue working on its own. AFK farms will also continue to run while a player is busy working somewhere else. Most farms will keep running as long as they are in loaded chunks.
This article lists some amazing AFK farms that can still function in the absence of the player.
AFK farms in Minecraft
5) Iron farm
Iron farms rely on villagers to spawn iron golems after being frightened by pillagers or zombies. Iron golems spawned by villagers fall into a lava trap and die. Upon dying, these tanky mobs drop iron ingots and poppies. Iron farms are AFK-able and do not require a player to run them.
However, the chunk must be loaded for villagers to spawn iron golems. Players can use chunk loaders to run the farm if they travel away from it.
4) AFK fish farm
The Minecraft 1.16 update heavily nerfed AFK fish farms. They have become less efficient and slower, but players can still use them to get rare items like nautilus shells, saddles and name tags. Players can use an auto clicker to do AFK fishing in Minecraft.
To get the best loot, players will have to enchant their fishing rod with Luck of the Sea III and Lure III.
3) Pumpkin and melon farm
In Minecraft, pumpkins and melons grow in a similar manner. They grow from a stem onto the nearby block. Using observers, players can detect when a pumpkin or melon is ready to be harvested. Once it is ready, observers send a signal to pistons, who then break the pumpkin/melon. It is simple to build an AFK farm in Minecraft.
2) Bamboo farm
Bamboo can be farmed in a manner similar to pumkins and melons. Observers can detect if bamboo is ready for harvesting. When it grows, the observer will activate the piston to break the bamboo. It then gets collected by a hopper minecart system.
Bamboo is used as fuel in furnaces. With an automatic bamboo farm, players will have infinite fuel in Minecraft.
1) Gold XP farm
Using entity crushers, players can build highly efficient gold XP farms. After last year's Nether update, gold became a valuable resource in Minecraft. At some point, most players will need to make a gold farm to create bartering farms. Gold XP farms are completely AFK-able and provide tons of experience levels.
