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.
