Oregon offers free fishing days last Friday and Saturday of November

On November 27 and 28, people in Oregon can fish, clam, or crab for free.

Posted: Nov 20, 2020 4:07 PM

SALEM, Ore. — Oregon's next free fishing days are coming up on next Friday and Saturday, the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife announced on Friday.

On November 27 and 28, anyone in Oregon can fish, clam, or crab without a license or tags — including the Combined Angling Tag, Columbia River Basin Endorsement, or Two-Rod Validation.

Oregon State Parks has also waived parking fees, providing free day-use, that Friday.

"Governor Brown has announced a two-week freeze from Nov. 18-Dec. 2, 2020 to stop the rapid spread of coronavirus," ODFW said. "Recognizing that spending time outdoors with those in your household is safe, this freeze does not close outdoor areas like state parks."

All fishing and hunting seasons remain open as scheduled. Fish hatcheries are closed to visitors, but most ODFW wildlife areas are open for hunting, fishing, and viewing. ). Fish hatcheries will allow access to fishing grounds off-site as they are able during normal working hours.

"While Free Fishing also applies to nonresidents, nonresidents should not travel into Oregon just to fish," ODFW said. "The governors of Oregon, Washington and California are asking nonresidents to quarantine for 14 days after they enter the state."

No licenses or tags are required next Friday and Saturday, but other fishing regulations apply — including closures, bag limits, and size restrictions.

“Getting outdoors to fish can be a safe and healthy activity right now, and a good respite during this difficult time,” said Curt Melcher, ODFW Director. “We do ask all who participate to please follow all virus precautions so everyone has a safe time during these Free Fishing Days in Oregon.”

Call the ODA Shellfish safety hotline at 1-800-448-2474 or check ODA’s Recreational Shellfish page before heading out shellfishing. Currently razor clamming is closed along the entire coast due to domoic acid levels. Dungeness crab is also closed in ocean waters until November 30 but open in bays, beaches, estuaries, tide pools, piers and jetties along the entire Oregon coast.
