Once a year, the State of Oregon offers free fishing for everyone where fishing, crabbing and clamming are permitted!
No license, tag or endorsement is needed because the fishin’ is free! Catch limits and other restrictions do apply.
Hosted by the Oregon Department of Fishing and Wildlife (ODFW), Saturday September 1st and Sunday, September 2nd are both days where you can fish, crab and clam for free! This opportunity is for anywhere in Oregon fishing, crabbing and clamming are allowed—rivers, streams, lakes and ocean.
This is a great time to find a new, great fishing spot. Bring the family along as mom might enjoy it just as much as dad, and, it’s a great time to introduce children to fishing. While the boys love to fish with dad, don’t forget that the girls do also! Some of our happiest times were fishin’ with dad!
Don’t miss this weekend for great fishing and bringing home some Dungeness crabs and Oregon clams! Yummy feasting! Visit the Wells Creek Area on highway 38 on your way to the coast for some award-winning clam chowder at the Inn. Be sure to stop in and say hello to us at www.umpquahaven.com or stay the weekend in your RV. We would love to see you if we aren’t out fishing!
