Arctic Char

Come test yourself against a real fighter, the Arctic Char. Arctic Char fishing in Newfoundland and Labrador is restricted to certain areas and rivers, especially on the island. While the colder temperatures of the rivers in Labrador attracts thousands of Arctic Char annually. Newfoundland rivers are less frequented by this species. The northern half of the island is reasonably good fishing with large stocks of Arctic Char but as you progress northward it generally becomes much better.

Outfitters in Labrador are notorious for the large number of Arctic Char retrieved at there fishing lodges annually. Probably one of the best Arctic Char fishing areas on the globe is in Labrador, Canada. World record Arctic Char has been reprieved in these waters and some rivers are literally teeming with this interesting fish.
