There is a really good lake in Townlong that has pools of Rebelly and pools of Salmon. Makes your casters happy too.

You can still catch them in open water in inland Jade Forest. Amongst all the other random fish.

I don't think you read the other posts - those fishies pools are always there in Townlong Steppes. May come up as a daily, iono haven't done those lately. If so, you'll get tons at once.

They thought things out.

I found plenty just north of the Niuzao Temple. There's a pond/lake/small-ish body of water there with four pools of fish, always*. With water walking it's really simple to walk between the pools and not have to fight anything nearby.

You may need to fish up the emperor salmon pools for the redbelly to appear, though.

Edit to add: * "always" not guaranteed, but I fished up about 100 redbelly mandarin and never saw fewer than four pools. Once one pool was fished out, another respawned immediately -- though it may be at the other end of the lake.

It's just the one lake Qazzi described. It's the one with the pet trainer (turn on that icon on world map as a guide if you can't figure it out).

If you haven't explored the zone, the area may be all browned out.

Having the raft from the anglers is a bonus there since there are random npcs roaming around the area. Fly NW from Nizhao Temple and you will happen upon it.

Not really a good trade in my opinion.

I thought so at first, but the pools are VERY sparse and I have piled up quite a few tokens, so I have done that to get enough for 3 more toons to max cooking. That was much easier than fishing for them and the price of black pepper, soy sauce and the other one are fairly low.

I've only found redbelly pools to be very sparse if people skip all the salmon.

Given a chance between a pool being redbelly and salmon when it appears, and people skipping the salmon... eventually you won't have any pools of redbelly, just salmon all over the place.

But I can fish up five redbelly far faster than I can get an Ironpaw token, even if I do have to fish out some salmon pools. I'd much rather use my tokens for things I can't get elsewhere, like the black pepper and soy sauce (that I'm not about to pay hundreds of gold for).

I generally only find pools of salmon there, clearly people have already done that.

Except when you have piled them up across an army of alts.

As stated above, you can find the Redbelly in the lake N of Niuzzao Temple. If you fish the salmon pools, the redbelly pools will start spawning. There are not as many as the salmon, but you can get what you need for leveling your cooking .

Each school node has a chance to spawn two different school types. People only fish the one they need, and this gradually makes them disappear, as only half respawn with the wanted fish, each time. If you think you're in the right place but can't find the fish you want, fish out a few pools. About half of them should respawn the kind you want.

I found that the river in the south is the best chance. It sucks to farm these, but it souldn't take ore than an hour to get 3 stacks

Just wait for the Daily secret fishing spot to be Red Belly Mandarin. It's not worth it looking for them specifically outside of those days I've found.

No they didn't think things out.

I've been to Townlong Steppes and I found 1 pool. I went to The Jade Forest 1 found 0 pools.

They may have been there at one time but no longer. There were 4 pools of salmon and ZERO pools of Redbelly.
