Playing on normal difficulty. Gave him the food, the coat, and now he wants a fishing pole. Prima guide says that its right at the spillway heading to pleasant river. It is no where to be found.... i am exactly where its supposed to be and it is NOT there..... this better not glitch out because im going for the all side quest complete achievement.

I got the fishing rod by the docks, at the very top by a bin.

flinttown you couldn't have said it better. I'm going through the exact same glitch and can't seem to find a solution anywhere. Pls let us know if you come up with a solution as it's really annoying...

Completed it, but now the doors are locked again. Got the achievement & used them-but the primary one locked.

I havnt found any solution yet other than its JUST NOT THERE.....

This is a game breaker for me. I did not spend this much time playing the side quests to get 2 away and not be able to move forward with the achievement. Im only playing this game through once so this was definatly that game changer.

I was on hard difficulty and found the rod by the docks before the bridge. As soon as you get to the docks take a right and it should be leaning on a house.

You were on hard thats why you found it there. Im on normal difficulty and its supposed to be by the spillage and it is no where to be found. Easy and Hard have different locations. I did look though where you asked and its not there.

Yea, just finished every single side quest but this one hoping that it might spawn the fishing pole where its supposed to be. Nope, looks like i wont be finishing this game till hopefully a patch comes around. :-(

Im thinking thats what i caused by getting the coat before i even started the homeless quest. I got the candy bar, coat, but fishing pole is no where to be found now :(

I can't find the rod. Normal difficulty, should be by the sewer area.

So i've got the rod, (easy/hard) and now he's collapsed on the floor, lol.
Anyway the blue door you go through has locked itself, I can go through the first blue door which leads to the sewers which you go through to the river, but to get to any other subway station is now locked, weird?

As stupid as it sounds have you tried talking to him again and then checking the location?

The rod was where it was suppose to on normal in the sewage area. My only problem is the sewer doors are locked and I can't figure out how to unlock them. I got the achievement for helping the bum.

by the time i had the pole and he unlocked the last subway, i was about to leave the whole area anyway, so the relocking of doors didn't really affect much.

I checked all 4 locations...

No fishing rod. I've tried clearing the cache. I've tried entering and exiting countless houses. I've tried reloading the game. I don't think it's going to show up...

Looks like I'm going to have to do all of the side quests over again.

OK, it happened to me as well, after a little research, it seems to mainly, or only glitch on the Normal Puzzle difficulty.

Since I posted a solution on TA for this achievement, I'm in the middle of trying to test it out on the other two puzzle difficulties.
