Clam digs approved for next week

January 24, 2014

Clam diggers can return to coastal beaches Tuesday, Jan. 28 through Sunday, Feb. 2 to dig razor clams during the last of three openings this month.

Dan Ayres, WDFW shellfish manager, said conditions for the upcoming dig should be much better than during the last opening in mid-January.

“The surf has calmed down, and we have some excellent low tides this time around,” Ayres said. “Success rates should be much improved during the next opener.”

Upcoming digs are scheduled on the following dates, beaches and low tides:

Jan. 28, Tuesday, 4:36 p.m.; -0.7 feet; Twin Harbors
Jan. 29, Wednesday, 5:25 p.m.; -1.2 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach
Jan. 30, Thursday, 6:11 p.m.; -1.4 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks
Jan. 31, Friday, 6:55 p.m.; -1.4 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks
Feb. 1, Saturday, 7:38 p.m.; -1.0 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks, Copalis
Feb. 2, Sunday, 8:20 p.m.; -0.5 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks

One additional razor clam dig is tentatively scheduled in late February during a season that is expected to extend into spring, but they will not receive final approval until new marine toxin tests have been conducted.

Those dates are:

Feb. 26, Wednesday, 4:15 p.m.; -0.4 feet; Twin Harbors
Feb. 27, Thursday, 5:04 p.m.; -0.7 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks
Feb. 28, Friday, 5:49 p.m.; -0.8 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks
