Highlights from this week’s Recreation Report:

Fish for FREE this WEEKEND!!

It’s Free Fishing Weekend Feb. 15 & 16

This weekend you won’t need a license, tag or endorsement to fish, crab or clam anywhere in Oregon that’s open – to fishing, crabbing and clamming. Looking for some ideas? We happen to have some.

  • It’s prime winter steelhead fishing on the north and mid-coast, and rivers should be in great shape for at least the early part of the weekend.
  • The Sandy and Clackamas rivers also will be prime for good winter steelheading.
  • Some anglers have been catching their limits of hatchery steelhead on the South Umpqua.
  • Several water bodies along the mid-coast, and in the Willamette and SW zones will be stocked with trout this week.
  • Trout fishing has been good (and for big fish, too) in Priday, Krumbo and Malheur reservoirs.
  • And for something a little different, check out the wiper fishing in Ana Reservoir.
  • Some extra-large trout (three pounders) will be stocked in several north Willamette waterbodies just in time for Free Fishing weekend: Henry Hagg Lake (500), St, Louis Ponds (500), EE Wilson Pond (500), Sheridan Pond (150) and Willamina Pond (150).
