From March 12th until March 19th, Tom Nook, as well as his nephews Timmy and Tommy, are visiting Saltwater Shores. He's looking for fish, and you're just the person to catch them for him. Four new fish are temporarily available during this event, sporting how they will look in Animal Crossing: New Horizons:
- Island Horse Mackerel
- Island Red Snapper
- Island Olive Flounder
- Island Tuna
Using your normal fishing rod, you may occasionally pull up 2 special fish rather than just one. Renting Tom Nook's golden fishing rod will always get your 2 fish, but it costs leaf tickets to rent. You can also use tourney throw nets to catch 6 fish at once on the pier.
There are also a number of Tom Nook Challenges to complete for getting certain numbers of special fish or special fish of a certain size. Complete them for Leaf Tickets, tourney throw nets or more special event furniture/clothing.
There are 4 trophies that can be obtained for reaching total length milestones:
- Wood: 5.0 cm to 3,799.9 cm
- Bronze: 3,800.0 cm to 6,099.9 cm
- Silver: 6,100.0 cm to 14,399.9 cm
- Gold: 14,400.0 cm or above

From March 12th until May 11th, you can invite Timmy and Tommy Nook to your campsite via Timmy's Nook Inc. banner and Tommy's Nook Inc. banner, available each for Leaf Tickets.
