Free Fishing Weekend will return to Oregon on Friday & Saturday, November 27 & 28, the weekend after Thanksgiving Day.

It will be the last of four free fishing dates in 2020.

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.

There are usually a host of free fishing events that coincide with the weekend, all of which have been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
