The Fishing Hole is a location from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. This small lake, located in the Lanayru Province, in the Upper Zora's River, is owned by Hena. For a price, Link can fish in the lake where many fish, including Greengills, Hyrule Bass, Hylian Pike, Ordon Catfish, and the extremely rare Hylian Loach (which can only be caught during Summer) can be found. Larger fish tend to congregate under the waterfalls, under the arch, or in the Lily Pads. Link can either go fishing alone for 20 Rupees or hire Hena to help him for 100 Rupees. The seasons will usually be different every time Link enters the fishing hole. To change the season inside the Fishing Hole, Link can repeatedly enter and exit the area until it has changed to the season of his liking.
In the cabin nearby, also owned by Hena, is a tank that displays all of Link's catches. There's also a section with various items that Link can examine, where he can also play the mini-game Rollgoal, which Link receives a Frog Lure for beating. If Link rolls into the walls an exceeding amount of times, Hena will yell at him and throw him out, and he can only enter again if he apologizes for his actions. Also, a Beehive can be found hanging from the back porch of the cabin. If Link knocks it down, he can obtain Bee Larva, which are used as bait when fishing.
A scrapped version of the Fishing Pond appears in early trailers and demos for Twilight Princess. It was apparently near Ordon Village, as Link is shown in his Ranch Clothes and like the final version allowed Link to fish from a boat. This fishing hole appears to be a swamp-like area.
An alternate version of Hena's Fishing Hole appears in a promotional demo, in which Hena gives Link a tour of her Fishing Hole. In addition to introducing Link to Lure Fishing, she can also gives Link a tutorial on Bobber Fishing. Besides the bobber fishing tutorial, the fish encounter in this version of the Fishing Hole are larger in size than those caught in the final product.
