Fishing is a complement to the provisioning system, with the fish you catch serving as ingredients for recipes to create drink that would give you XP (Psionic Ambrosia) and recovery buffs (Ortega's Smoked Bear Haunch). In order to craft the recipes, you need Perfect Roe, which is an ingredient you get from skinning the common fish you have caught.
Note: The green and blue trophy fish are not able to be skinned. When you find a fishing hole and look at it, you'll be prompted to hold down E to select a bait.

At other times, it can be harder to tell, like this waterfall near the Armature's Upheaval in Stonewalls, which is foul probably because of all the crap coming out of that forge.
Rivers will be any kind of moving waters, usually starting at a waterfall and ending in either a lake or the ocean. When it gets near a lake or ocean, the water type of the fishing hole can vary.
Guts from small frogs, guard and chickens as well as tiny ocean minnows are the best bait for these. Lakes will be any large or small body of water that's not the ocean, like the Steam lake Encampment in southern Stonewalls, that's patrolled by this asshole bull fetch.
