Oregon may have a $1,000,000 fish
And if we do, it will be in Henry Hagg Lake in Washington County or South Twin Lake in Deschutes County. Both are included in “Fish for Millions” contest sponsored by Cabela’s, and fish and wildlife agencies (including ODFW). See more details about the contest and register to participate.

A great weekend for trout fishing
Not only is it Memorial Day Weekend (an extra day for fishing!) but several western Oregon rivers and streams open for trout fishing this Saturday. In addition, several waterbodies will be getting extra stocked trout for the holiday weekend.
The next weekend looks pretty good, too
Free Fishing Weekend is June 1 and 2 – you won’t need a license to fish, crab or clam anywhere in the state. This is a great time to take a friend or family member fishing! If you’re new to fishing check out the list of Free Fishing Weekend events. If you’re striking out on your own, the 2013 Spring Fishing Guide can help you pick a place to go.
Point savers available July 1 – Nov. 30
If you have forgot to apply for a controlled hunt and only need a point saver, remember you can now get point savers from July 1 – November 30. This started last year to enable hunters to spread the cost of licenses throughout the year. The form needed to get a point saver will be available online by July 1, 2013.
Go spring turkey hunting
There is just a few more days left in the season, which closes May 31. Tips for beginners here.
