Lake Hylia is a location found in Breath of the Wild.

Overview

Lake Hylia is a large body of water found just southeast of the Great Plateau. The Hylia River and many of its tributaries spill out into Lake Hylia. At the west side of the lake, Hylia Island is located which includes the Ya Naga Shrine. The Bridge of Hylia extends across the lake, which connects out to the Highland Stable, Lakeside Stable, and all the way out east to Lurelin Village.

There are three Rafts found throughout Lake Hylia, one just west of the north end of the Bridge of Hylia, and another just east of the south end of the bridge. A third raft can be found on a dock at the west side of Hylia Island.

In the water itself, there are plenty of Hyrule Bass and Staminoka Bass. While not as common, Hearty Bass are also present in the water. There are also several Bright-Chested Ducks swimming around the lake, usually in groups of three.

A Wife Washed Away

Main article: A Wife Washed Away

After completing Vah Ruta, speak with Fronk at Zora's Domain. Fronk's wife Mei has been missing ever since Vah Ruta started to act up. Even with Vah Ruta back to normal, Mei has not returned and Fronk is still worried. He tasks Link with helping him find his wife.

Mei was fishing at Zora River and Fronk thinks she could have been swept downstream and perhaps washed away all the way down to Lake Hylia. Mei can be found on the small island just east of Hylia Island, or sometimes swimming in the water nearby. Talk to her and after realizing her husband is worried about, she realizes she has to go back home. She thanks Link for delivering the message and rewards him with five Staminoka Bass.
