DIAMOND LAKE — Veteran Ken Rice stepped outside into a 29 degree morning. Frost spread across the ground. A few clouds haloed Mt. Bailey. And ten fishing boats revved up on the docks of Diamond Lake.
During Free Fishing Weekend, June 4-5, Oregonians can fish, clam and crab for free without purchasing tags. In Douglas County, events will be held at Cooper Creek, Diamond Lake, Galesville Reservoir and Lake Marie. Free fishing is not restricted to the events.
