Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The fisherman's sex and appearance are randomly generated.
  • The fisherman is referred to as "Scavenger" in-game.
  • They own the items in their footlocker outside of their makeshift home. Looting the footlocker is therefore considered stealing.
  • An image of the fisherman may show in Fallout 3's ending so long as the player character ends with "Good" or '"Very Good" Karma.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

The Potomac fisherman appears only in Fallout 3.
