Clam digs approved starting this weekend
State fishery managers have approved an evening razor-clam dig on ocean beaches starting this Saturday and running for eight days on the lowest tides so far this season.
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife approved the dig after marine toxin tests showed the clams on those beaches are safe to eat.
“We’ve had some great digs so far this season, but this one could be truly exceptional,” said Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager. “If the weather cooperates, most diggers should be able to get their limit in record time.”
The upcoming dig is scheduled on the following dates, beaches and low tides:
- Nov. 30, Saturday, 4:28 p.m.; -0.1 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Copalis, Mocrocks
