My question is out of curiosity, I received an email from ODFW notifying me of a free fishing weekend in Feb. (I am on the ODFW mailing list). As you see in the link, it says “anywhere in Oregon, no license or endorsements“. can I interpret that as I can take my boat out and spend the weekend on the lower Columbia and fish for Salmon, Steelhead and Sturgeon without endorsements even If the waters are closed and species are closed?
On Free Fishing Weekends, you don’t need a license to fish, crab or clam anywhere in Oregon. That’s no license, no tag, no endorsement needed.
