Best Way To Catch Char

Can Only Be Caught On Cliffs


The Char is a fish of uncommon rarity which only inhabits bodies of water found on top of cliffs. As long as the water is on an elevated place reachable with stairs or a ladder, a pond or river are both okay!

Increase The Number Of Cliffs On Your Island

By using the Island Designer tool, you'll be able to make more cliffs on your island, meaning it's possible to increase your chance of catching this fish even without using bait. You'll need to get a rank 3 island rating to unlock this feature, however!

Make Bodies Of Water On The Cliffs

Try expanding the amount of water you have on top of cliffs to improve your chances of seeing a Cherry Salmon. If you don't care too much about appearances, just build a whole bunch of lakes and rivers on top of cliffs to get the best results.

Use Bait


If you want to catch Char quickly, you're definitely going to want to use bait. Go fishing after you've made enough bait - the manila clams needed to make the bait can be obtained easier on rainy days, so give that a try!

Char is available after 9 AM in Southern Hemi. I caught one at 9:55 AM.

I caught 2 last night as it rained all night. They seemed to spawn around 2-3:30 am. One was on the 2nd level clifftop river. 2nd char was on the upper clifftop river. No bait. Since it was raining, I fished all night making rounds from ocean to clifftop river.

It took 40 pieces of bait and caught it on the last piece 2nd level right by waterfall.
