Abstract: Dolly Varden have a trout-like body. Like other char, when viewed from the side, the body is covered with light speckles on a darker background. (Real trout have dark speckles on a light background.) Sea-run (anadromous) fish are dark blue on their back, upper head and upper sides, but the belly is silver to white. Freshwater fish are olive-green to brown on the back and upper sides, the sides are paler in colour and the belly is white to dusky. The sides are marked with yellow, pale pink or orange spots, which are much harder to see on anadromous fish. These colours become stronger and brighter during spawning season. The fin on their backs has no spots or other markings. The lower fins are white or creamy on the leading edge with a single thin black and thin red line behind. There are well developed teeth on both jaws. Mature males can develop hooked jaws, called ‘kypes’.
