Razor Clam Digs

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has tentatively
scheduled a new series of evening razor clam digs through February.
Under that plan, various ocean beaches will be open for five days in
February if marine toxin tests show the clams are safe to eat.
WDFW will announce final word on those digs about a week before they
are scheduled to begin.
“We’re announcing these dates now so people can start making plans
for the new year,” said Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager.
“We’ve had a terrific season so far, and expect plenty of great digging in the months ahead.”
As in recent months, all digs are scheduled on evening tides. No digging will be allowed on any beach before noon.
Upcoming digs are scheduled on the following dates, beaches and low
Jan. 31st: Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks
Feb. 1: Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks, Copalis
Feb. 2: Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks
Feb. 26: Twin Harbors
Feb. 27: Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks
Feb. 28: Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks
Under state law, diggers can take 15 razor clams per day and are required to keep the first 15 they dig. Each digger’s clams must
be kept in a separate container.
All diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable 2013-14 fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach.
