Oregon ‘Free Fishing’ weekend approaches

SALEM, Ore. – Oregon’s next Free Fishing weekend is fast approaching. So now is the time to plan ahead if you want to fish, crab, and clam for no cost.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife said Free Fishing Weekend is taking place Saturday, June 4, and Sunday, June 5, 2022. While you won’t need a license to fish on those days, area closures, bag limits and all other regulations still apply.

After several cancelations due to COVID-19, Free Fishing weekend events involving ODFW staff and volunteers are returning in a limited capacity. A full list of events is available HERE.

ODFW has 101 suggestions for places to fish. And if you live near Portland, Bend, Medford, Roseburg, Lane County or on the south coast, there are lots of nearby options.

Visit the Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations to find out more.
