Tentative clam digs announced through December

November 1, 2013

Clam digs start tonight on Twin Harbors and Mocrocks, a tentative dig is scheduled for November 15-20, and now the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife have tentatively scheduled three razor clam digs for December, including 15 total digging days in the month and a three-day New Year’s Eve dig at four coastal razor clam beaches.

“Although these digs are still tentative, tide levels look good,” said Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager. “That’s especially true for the eight-day dig beginning Nov. 30, and for the New Year’s Eve dig.”

He highlighted ample opportunities to dig for holiday celebrations this year.

“Razor clam digging on New Year’s Eve has become a tradition for many Washingtonians,” said Ayres. “The tides aren’t conducive to a holiday dig every year, but they’re with us in 2013.”

In past years, as many as 20,000 people have descended on ocean beaches to dig razor clams on New Year’s Eve, Ayres said.
