The Arctic charr is a slender member of the salmon and trout family. Usually dark on the back, lighter on the belly, and having light spots on the sides. During breeding season, both sexes become highly colored.
From July to mid-September, Arctic charr will be found in deeper water where temperature and oxygen are sufficient for survival.
The latter part of September can be a great time to fish for Arctic charr. Depending on weather patterns, surface waters may have cooled enough to allow fish to move about the water column after a long summer period of dwelling in deep water.
