Razor clam digs approved starting this week

November 13, 2013

Clam digs will happen this weekend after toxin tests have showed the clams are safe to eat.

State fishery managers approved the second of two evening razor-clam digs this month, this one running from Friday, Nov. 15, through Wednesday, Nov. 20.

Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager, reminds diggers that digging is not allowed at any beach before noon, and that best digging typically occurs an hour or two before low tide.

Dates, beaches and low tides:

Nov. 15, Friday, 5:01 p.m.; -0.3 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks, Copalis
Nov. 16, Saturday, 5:42 p.m.; -0.6 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks, Copalis
Nov. 17, Sunday, 6:20 p.m.; -0.7 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks
Nov. 18, Monday, 6:57 p.m.; -0.6 feet; Twin Harbors
Nov. 19, Tuesday, 7:33 p.m.; -0.4 feet; Twin Harbors
Nov. 20, Wednesday, 8:09 p.m.; -0.2 feet; Twin Harbors

“This is a great opportunity to dig some razor clams for your Thanksgiving table,” said Ayres. He recommends bringing a lantern for evening digs.
