Freshwater Fishing Hotspots

I'm doing the Fishing quests and need some yellow fish. I barely ever fish inland non-afk so I don't know if hotspots are marked with Birds like the Oceans ones. Are they? Or do they have a different marking type or something? Or do they not exist at all anymore? I searched around and didn't find an answer about Freshwater ones, only info on Ocean ones. Thanks

    All depends on where in what body of fresh water.  The reference to the birds is that they will be focusing on bait fish that are being driven towards the surface or that simply live in big balls/clumps/schools anyway.   A large body of freshwater that has schooling fish like shad may have the same indicators, although bird species may change.

    I do 99% of my fresh water fishing in small urban ponds, creeks, and a local river.  For that type of fishing, knowing fish behavior and preferences for things like structure, water flow, etc. are critical to catching fish.  Of course, since I have clear water spring runs all around me, sight fishing is also possible.  Just need a good pair of polarized glasses and super small/finesse/ultralight tackle.

    Any fish eating bird (herons,gulls,terns,cormorants even pelicans sometimes) will indicate baitfish in freshwater. Larger fish will be close by.
