"Clarence's Fishing Hole" Buskin River State Recreation Site Things to Do Tip by herzog63

  Clarence's Fishing Hole
by herzog63

This can be found at about one half a mile into the park on the second right you can take as you drive in. There is a parking area and it makes a great place to view salmon (in season) as it's built up right next to the river. There is a picnic table here too. I'm not sure of the story of who Clarence is/was. But I also enjoy fishing in front of the the viewing deck after a good rain as the river is quite wide in this area so it can be shallow if we haven't been having much rain. After the pink salmon have spawed and died it can also be a very stinky area while the dead carcuses wait for the September rains!!
