One of the best parts of Animal Crossing New Horizons is the ability to fish, a mechanic much-improved from previous entries in the series. With every month comes an influx of new fish to catch. In this guide we’re going to go over how to catch the Char, its location, sell price, and more in Animal Crossing New Horizons. Let’s dive right into the guide.
Char Seasonality & Spawn Times
Depending on what hemisphere you are playing in, these are the times of year that the Char can be caught.
- Northern Hemisphere: March-June, September-November
- Southern Hemisphere: September-December, March-May
As long as you are playing in the respective months, the Char can be found between 4pm and 9am. Thankfully the Char will be around for a few months when present in either hemisphere so there isn’t too much rush.
Catching the Char in Animal Crossing New Horizons
On to how you actually catch the Char. Equip your fishing rod and make sure you’re holding it, approach any clifftop river on your island, and look for a medium-sized shadow in the water. This may be the Char!
Face the water and cast your fishing rod in front of the Char by pressing A. Wait until you see the float sink into the sea indicating that the Char has bitten on and is ready to be pulled out, press A again, and there you have it! The medium shadow hopefully turned out to be the Char.
Make sure to use any Fish Bait you have on you to spawn some more fish in the river if you have no luck catching the Char your first time.
Char Sell Price
If you’re looking to sell your Char for some well-earned bells, you can earn 3,800 from the twins at Nook’s Cranny. If you wait until C.J. is around, you can fetch a nicer price from him of 5,700 bells!
