Love to fish and enjoy the incredible Oregon outdoors?

You won't want to miss the renowned Free Fishing Days in Oregon!

Interested in taking advantage of this opportunity but want to learn more? Follow along.

Check Out our Insiders Scoop for Everything you Need to Know about Free Fishing Days in Oregon

If you're familiar with the northern Oregon Coast and our local outdoor activities, you'll know we have both wonderful rivers, lakes and streams and the incredible Pacific Ocean right out our back door. Here at Manzanita Beach Life we have lots of visitors throughout the year taking advantage of both our freshwater fishing and ocean fishing.

While during Free Fishing Day in Oregon you don't need a license or tag to fish, crab, or clam anywhere in Oregon that is open to fishing, crabbing, and clamming, all other rules and regulations will still apply. As usual, educate yourself before you go.

If you're fishing during other times of the year and wondering where to buy an Oregon Fishing License, you can find more information here, or check here for Oregon crabbing or clamming licenses.

When are the Free Fishing Days in Oregon?

We've got you covered. You'll find the Free Fishing Days include:

2018 Oregon Free Fishing Days:

Feb. 17 - 18, President’s Day Weekend June 2 - 3 Sept. 1 - 2, Labor Day Weekend Nov. 23 - 24, Thanksgiving Weekend

If you're new to fishing in Oregon, you might save the date for the June 2 - 3 event. It's the original Free Fishing Weekend, and you'll find that during this weekend the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and sponsoring partners hold free fishing events around Oregon. At most events you'll find both the equipment and instruction to get you started on your fishing adventure.

On the north Oregon Coast, the following two Free Fishing Weekend clinics will be held on June 2.

  • Rockaway Beach, Nedonna Pond, 9 - 2 pm Contact Brian Johnson (503) 368-6828

  • Tillamook, Trask River Hatchery, 8 - 3 pm James Skaar (503) 842-4090

Check the ODFW website for other clinic locations, dates and times.

Wondering what the fishing conditions are during the Oregon Free Fishing 2018 season? Check the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife fishing division page, or their regularly updated fishing report.

For the June season you'll find freshwater fishing is king. Trout tends to be plentiful, and the traditional stocking from the hatcheries makes the numbers even greater.

Check back often - we'll post updates on the Free Fishing schedule in Oregon.
