Free fishing weekend: 15th & 16th!


Well-known member
SALEM, Ore.—Add fishing to your President’s Day weekend plans—it’s free to fish, crab or clam anywhere in Oregon on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 15 and 16.

That means no fishing licenses or tags (including a Combined Angling Tag or Columbia River Basin Endorsement or Two-Rod Validation) are required to fish, crab or clam—for both residents and non-residents. Although no licenses or tags are required, all other fishing regulations apply including closures, bag limits and size restrictions. See the Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations to find out more.

The Recreation Report comes out weekly and also features the latest on fishing conditions and opportunities, so check it out before you make your plans.

NOTE: Free fishing does NOT apply to Monday the 17th.

It is ONLY free to fish this Saturday and Sunday.
