Free fishing days Nov. 29th & 30th

Add fishing to your holiday plans

The Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving are Free Fishing Days in Oregon – days you don’t need a license or tag to fish, crab or clam anywhere in the state open to fishing/crabbing/clamming.

Remember, all other rules and regulations apply. Having out-of-town guests for the holiday? They can fish for free as well. Check out the zone reports for the best opportunities near you.

Introduction to big game hunting classes in Tualatin

Come learn the basics of big game hunting in one of four classes ODFW is offering in December in Tualatin. Each two-hour class will cover what and where to hunt, what licenses and tags you need, and how to select the right weapons and other gear.

Learn more and register.

Best bets for the weekend fishing

  • Crabbing in the bays has been fair to good.
  • Anglers have been reporting a “lights out” rockfish bite when ocean conditions permit.
  • Anglers can still find holdover trout in water bodies that have been stocked throughout the year.
  • While colder temperatures make fish a little finicky, anglers can target native redband trout in the Crooked, Metolius, Deschutes, Blitzen, Klamath, Chewaucan and Wallowa rivers.

Check out the zone reports for specific locations in your area.
