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.
Feb. 15-16 (Saturday & Sunday), President’s Day Weekend
June 6-7 (Saturday & Sunday)
Aug. 15-16 (Saturday & Sunday)
Nov. 27-28 (Friday & Saturday), Thanksgiving Weekend
*The FINE PRINT: Area closures, bag limits and all other regulations still apply.
The first weekend in June is Oregon’s traditional Free Fishing Weekend. On this weekend, ODFW and its partners will be sponsoring fishing events throughout the state. These events are free, and at most we’ll even provide the gear and instruction you’ll need to get started – from baiting the hook to landing your catch.
All events are Saturday, June 6 unless otherwise noted.
