Comments about Raw Whitescale Salmon
Below are readers' comments about "Raw Whitescale Salmon":
cayleb, August 2012:
Upon attempting to whittle down my lengthy list of fish to catch while simultaneously circuiting the world working on archaeology, I noted that Stratholme was listed as an excellent spot to catch Whitescale Salmon. (Of course with all the plague contamination in there, it's probably a good thing I'm not also working on my cooking!)
Alas, the green pools of goo inside the ziggurats in Stratholme are no longer fishable! Every cast that didn't result in a "cast did not land in fishable water" instead told me that "there are no fish here." (Does everyone's fishing pole talk or is that just something we draenei came up with?)
After having tried all three ziggurats from multiple angles with no difference, I left Stratholme and proceeded onwards to one of the ziggurats in Plaguewood, just to see if I was doing it wrong. But no, this ziggy was perfectly castable, and yielded some beautiful (if slightly plagued) Redgill.
Our days of urban apocalyptical ziggurat oceanography appear to be over, my friends.

Tonight (10/28/2013) I tried throwing my hook in one of the ziggurats inside Stratholme (specifically the sub-zone "The Gauntlet") and I was indeed able to catch something. I did an admittedly small sample of 10 casts, and I got the following:
1 Lightning Eel
4 Raw Whitescale Salmon
2 Raw Nightfin Snapper
1 Sickly Fish
2 Tangled Fishing Line
I was fishing with a 386-388 skill yet I still came out with 3 junk catches, so apparently the "no junk" threshold is higher than that.
