Clear Creek Fishing Site


Clear Creek is a popular spot for fishing.  Non-motorized boaters sometimes put in here for a trip to Beasley Flat, or take out here after floating from White Bridge, but this site is not a very good "boat launch."  The river bank is steep and slippery, and the parking lot is not especially close to the river; however, it is possible to launch or take-out at Clear Creek for those who don't have time for the 10-mile float from White Bridge to Beasley Flat and don't mind the inconvenience of a short walk and a less-than-perfect "boat launch."  Please note that river conditions vary greatly depending on weather, river level, and other factors.  Please plan ahead for a safe and enjoyable experience on the Verde River: Verde River Guide, Hwy 89A - Beasley Flat
