Fishing & hunting

Hunting and fishing opportunities are plentiful in Oregon state forests. These activities are regulated by seasons for various species of fish and game.

Many public lands are open to hunters, but fire restrictions and closures may be in effect. It’s critical to know what those are before you go. It's also smart to check for road closures on ODF forest roads before you head out.

Check with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) for current regulations and fees. Oregon is also known for its rivers and lakes, and anglers can find fishing opportunities somewhere in the state 365 days of the year. Check out the ODFW's fishing page to learn more about the year-round possibilities.
