Clam diggers can return to coastal beaches Tuesday through Sunday to dig razor clams during the last of three openings this month. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife approved the latest dig after marine toxin tests showed the clams are safe.
As in previous openings,all digs are scheduled on evening tides. No digging will be allowed on any beach before noon. Dan Ayres, WDFW shellfish manager, said conditions for the upcoming dig should be much better than during the last opening in mid-January because the surf has calmed down to provide excellent low tides.
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
