Winter steelhead on the coast, for starters. But don’t overlook ice fishing for perch and trout in the colder parts of the state and early season stocked trout in the Willamette Valley. FFW is a great time to introduce friends or family members to your favorite fishing adventures – no license, tag or validation needed to fish anywhere in Oregon. (All other regulations and closures apply.)
We get it. The tag deadline isn’t until May 15 and it’s easy to procrastinate. But there’s always a last minute rush to apply for tags, and this year there’s an extra step (verifying your account) with the new licensing system. How nice will it be to get it done early.
We've extended the reporting deadline for 2018 hunts to April 15 to give you more time to report under the new system. Just go to the MyODFW.com licensing page (click on any button). Once you have completed the steps to verify/look up your account, choose “Submit a Hunting and Fishing Outcome Report” or “Outcome Reporting/Mandatory Reporting” to complete your report.
