Fishing is a great profession for making money, especially at low levels. Although time consuming, it’s pretty easy to level. Fishing skill is leveled at the same rate regardless of where you fish. Thus, you could level your fishing all the way to 300 from the comfort of a capital city like Stormwind or Orgrimmar.

That said, there are a couple things worth keeping in mind: which trainers teach the high level skills and which fish are valuable (because you might as well make some money while you level your skill).

Fishing Trainers

Tier Levels Trainer
Apprentice 1-75 Any fishing trainer in major cities or towns.
Journeyman 75-150 Any fishing trainer in major cities or towns.

Artisan Fishing Quest (Nat Pagle, Angler Extreme)

To train fishing above 225, you must complete the the Nat Pagle, Angler Extreme fishing quest given by Nat Pagle in Dustwallow Marsh. Nat Pagle is located on an island southwest of Theramore Isle.

Nat Pagle can be found on this small island southwest of Theramore within Dustwallow Marsh.

The quest will require you to catch four special fish. Note that you must catch the fish. Buying them on the auction house will not complete the quest. These fish can be caught by free fishing (not pools) in the following locations:
