ODFW announces free fishing days for 2017

Published on March 20, 2017 2:07PM

Anglers and would-be anglers can enjoy a weekend of free fishing April 22-23.

On these two days, Oregonians and visitors can fish, crab and clam for free anywhere in Oregon without a license, tag or endorsement.

This free fishing weekend, as well as to two other free fishing holidays Nov. 25-26 and Dec. 31-Jan. 1, 2018 — is in addition to the traditional free fishing weekend on June 3-4.

“April 22 is also Earth Day, and what better way for Oregonians to get outside and celebrate the natural world than by taking family and friends out for a day of fishing,” said Mike Gauvin, ODFW recreational fishing manager.

While licenses are waived during free fishing days, all other regulations still apply.
