Where to Find Cave Jelly in Stardew Valley

As the name implies, you can find the Stardew Valley Cave Jelly in the mines. Specifically, level 20, level 60, and level 100. Reminder, those are the levels where the underground pools appear. Now, the problem is that all Jellies are extremely rare. From what we can tell, there’s a five percent chance that you’ll get a Jelly instead of a piece of trash. And trash is relatively rare already. Now lower that by five percent, and you’ve got a grind ahead of you, my friend. But it’s worth it: for one, you need to catch all three types of Jellies. Two, you need one of each to craft a Fish Smoker. Three, consuming Cave Jelly gives you +1 Luck (also 75 Energy and 33 Health).

How to Catch Cave Jelly in Stardew Valley

To catch Cave Jelly in Stardew Valley, you have to do everything to increase your odds. Equip the best fishing pole you’ve got. Also, purchase some bait (ideally deluxe bait) and dressed spinners from Willy. Last, but certainly not least, try to get your hands on a Lucky Lunch or any other item that will increase your luck. Then and only then should you go down to whichever underground lake you have access to. Use the elevator, of course. Even with all of those preparations, you might still spend a long, looong time fishing down there. Therefore, you should definitely also bring some stamina-restoring items, too. Good luck!
