THE FOLLOWING IS A PRESS RELEASE FROM THE OREGON DEPARTMENT OF FISH AND WILDLIFE
Everyone can fish, clam and crab for free in Oregon on Saturday and Sunday, June 5-6.
No fishing licenses or tags (including a Combined Angling Tag, Columbia River Basin Endorsement or Two-Rod Validation) are required by Oregon residents or nonresidents to fish, crab or clam in Oregon on those dates.
Although no licenses or tags are required these two days, all other fishing regulations apply including closures, bag limits and size restrictions. See the Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations to find out more. Remember to check for any in-season regulation changes (especially for salmon, steelhead, sturgeon and marine fishing) in the Zone where you will be fishing by visiting the Recreation Report, https://myodfw.com/recreation-report/fishing-report/
Keep in mind there are still recreation areas closed after last year’s fires; “know before you go” and check the interagency status map for details on closures; the site includes a boat ramp status map.
Oregon will have one more Free Fishing Weekend in 2021—the two days after Thanksgiving, Friday and Saturday, Nov. 26-27.
