"Buskin River State Recreation Site = Family Fun!" Buskin River State Recreation Site by herzog63

Great Family Fun close to town.........

For us going to the Buskin River in the summer time is a fun time!! We enjoy fishing as a family and of course eating the fresh Salmon too!! We also just enjoy sitting on the beach and watching the Stellar Sea Lions Harbor Seals pass by.

Hadji with a huge Pink Salmon

Pink Salmon don't get much bigger than this!! Of course the Red Salmon and Silver Salmon get much bigger!!

My wife enjoying some late evening fishing.....

When the Salmon run is strong you can find us and many other fisherman on the river at all times of the day.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great Fishing, Wildlife viewing
  • Cons:sometimes crowded in the summer.......
  • In a nutshell:It's a fun place!!

    What a pristine looking area. I can see you all had a good time with fishing. Tourists surely would want to show up here. Nice job of taking pictures and comments.

    I'm not really a fishing person myself, but that's one jeck of a silver salmon your son has caught! I do like hiking and the great outdoors though, and the idea of a makeshift BBQ and camping.

    So did Hadji pee in the bed thta night? are you allowed to eat that fish? most of the places here you have to put the fish back in the water as its just a sports.
