To enchant a fishing rod, you only need an Enchanting Table and an appropriate amount of Lapis lazuli to pay for the enchanting cost.

Best Enchantments for Fishing Rods in Minecraft
Luck of the Sea
Luck of the Sea is the must-have enchantment for Fishing Rods in Minecraft. It allows players to get better loot from fishing and is needed to pull off an enchanted book from fishing.
This enchantment increases the chances of treasure catches by about 2% per level while lowering the chance of catching Junk by 2% per level. It slightly lowers the chance of catching Fish by about 0.15% per level. I know it might not be a big number but you know it is still better than nothing.
Lure is another good enchantment for players to have on Fishing Rods. This enchantment increases the rate of Fish biting the hook. In short words, It decreases the wait time for biting the hook by 5 seconds per level.
At max level, the wait time reduces by 15 seconds so players won’t need to wait any longer and catch fish and other items at a very faster speed. Lure can only be obtained through the Enchanting Table.
Mending is one of the best enchantments to have on most of the tools and weapons in Minecraft. This is a universal enchantment means it can be used on many things besides Fishing Rods.
Mending converts the XP gained while fishing and uses it to repair the rod’s durability. In simple words, it can give the Fishing Rod infinite durability if used for fishing only.
Mending is a rare enchantment that can only be obtained through Enchanted Books in the Loot chests or by trading with villagers in Minecraft World.
