Fishing is free in Oregon for President’s Day weekend.
A release from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife said on Saturday and Sunday, people can fish, crab or clam anywhere in the state. The release said that means no fishing licenses or tags are needed for both residents and non-residents. All other fishing regulations still apply, including closures, bag limits, and size restrictions.
Crabbing is now open along the entire Oregon coast. Razor clamming is closed from Tillamook Head south to the California border. Bay clamming and mussel harvesting are open along the entire coast.
