On Dec. 1 ODFW will launch a new electronic license system that will allow you to print your 2019 licenses/tags at home, carry them on your phone, or buy at a license sales agent. Hold on to your 2018 license or take a photo of it so you have your Hunter/Angler ID number and can verify your account in the new system.
The Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving are Free Fishing Days in Oregon – days you don’t need a license or tag to fish, crab or clam anywhere in the state open to fishing/crabbing/clamming. (Remember, all other rules and regulations apply.) The weekly Recreation Report can help you find the best nearby opportunities.
