SALEM – A free fishing weekend will return to Oregon this weekend on Saturday and Sunday, August 17 & 18.

On those days, fishing, crabbing, and clamming is free to all residents and non-residents, meaning no fishing licenses or tags, including a Combined Angling Tag or Columbia River Basin Endorsement are required.

Regular rules and regulations apply, such as bag limits, size restrictions, and closures.
