Oregon’s many fishing opportunities are open to all, and through careful regulation and management, should remain as beautiful and fruitful for years to come.

Oregon’s fishing license requirement start a little younger than many states. While very family-fishing friendly, the state does require that anglers start carrying licenses at 12-years-old. There are several free fishing days throughout the state as well. Free days do not require a license. But anglers do need to know and follow all rules and regulations on free days as they would any other day of the year.

Additional discounts are available for senior anglers and may be available for individuals with disabilities and in a few other circumstances as well.

A two-rod validation also increases the line limit up to 5 lines for anglers while ice fishing.

Oregon also imposes specific equipment restrictions. Especially on snagging equipment and certain types of salmon catching equipment. All of these restrictions work to preserve the fish and the quality of the fishery, and failure to comply counts as a violation and may result in fines and/or suspension of your fishing privileges.
