Regular Medaka are the most common fish in Genshin Impact, and require the least amount of resources to catch -- just on Fruit Paste Bait. The easiest way to find these fish is to explore the Teyvat region. They're all over the place here. 

There are also fishing points in Liyue, like Bishui Plain and Mt. Aocang, where you can find Medaka. In Inazuma, you should check Suigetsu Pool and Sangonomiya Shrine on Watatsumi Island, and Nazuchi Beach in Kannazuka. Mondstadt, however, is the region that has the most Medaka fish. Pretty much all of the fishing holes in the Mondstadt region should have a few Medaka, including Stormbearer Mountains, Stormterror's Lair, the fishing spot near Dragonspire and Cider Lake.

Medaka being so plentiful is a good thing, since several recipes require them for crafting. You'll need Medaka for every bait recipe (3x), every fishing rod (20x), and to buy the Pool of Sapphire Grace (10x). Buying the Pool of Sapphire Grace allows you to add a fish pond to your Serenitea Pot.

It's important to note that Medaka, along with most other fish in Genshin Impact, usually take about three days to respawn. It's also a good idea to keep your eyes peeled for Golden Koi and Rusty Koi while you're out fishing for Medaka. They'll definitely come in handy for the crafting ahead.
