ODFW to offer free fishing

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife encourages Oregonians to start a new family tradition during Thanksgiving weekend — take the family fishing. On Friday and Saturday, Nov. 25 and 26, fishing, crabbing and clamming in Oregon will be free, which means no licenses, tags or endorsements are needed on those days.


“Getting outside fishing and enjoying Oregon’s natural areas is a great way to spend quality family time over the holidays,” said Rick Hargrave, ODFW spokesperson. While the weather can be challenging at Thanksgiving, fall can be a great time to go trout fishing because many ponds and lakes have been stocked and fish are feeding hungrily for the winter.
