Calling all Oregon anglers – free fishing weekend is here! Because the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is just so darn cool, this weekend they’ve invited novice and experienced anglers alike to enjoy license- and tag-free fishing in Southern and Central Oregon.

Free Fishing Weekend, June 12, is an attempt to expose children and inexperienced anglers to the joys of fishing, according to an ODFW press release. Each event features knowledgeable volunteers and loaner rods and reels. While license and tag fees and requirements have been waived, all other angling restrictions apply.

That’s right. Idaho’s Free Fishing Day is coming up quick, so get ready!

According to the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, this coming Saturday, June 13th, anglers will not be required to possess a license in order to fish in Idaho. However, all additional regulations still apply. Anglers wishing to fish any other day will require a valid fishing license; children under 14 never require a license to fish.


Oregon: Free Fishing Weekend

Friday, May 29th, 2009

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) released more information about its Free Fishing Weekend that will take place across the state June 6-7. Free Fishing Weekend is an Oregon tradition — two days each year when the public is allowed to fish, clam, or crab anywhere in the state without a fishing license or tag. ODFW encourages adults to use this opportunity to take youngsters fishing. 

“Helping kids discover the benefits of fishing through events like this is one of our agency’s top priorities,” said an ODFW district manager. “This is a good time for people to get out and explore the wealth of recreational opportunities that Oregon has to offer right in their own backyards.”
