Free Fishing Weekend in Oregon is June 9 and 10. ODFW waives all recreational fishing license requirements these two days in June, so plan to get out and take advantage of the many fishing opportunities that are available throughout the region. The department will provide gear and bait to people who need it, and volunteer instructors will be available to offer tips to anglers who want to improve their fishing skills.

Oregon may have a million dollar fish, If so,, one lucky angler could catch it in Crane Prairie, Dexter or Blue River Reservoir.
