Everyone can fish, clam and crab for free in Oregon on Saturday and Sunday, June 5-6.

No fishing licenses or tags (including a combined angling tag, Columbia River Basin endorsement or two-rod validation) are required by Oregon residents or nonresidents to fish, crab or clam in Oregon on those dates.
