Clam Dig

Posted on 19th September 2013 at 16:06

The first fall razor clam dig of the season opens today, and will run through Monday on one of Washington’s five razor clam beaches. Digging will be allowed at Twin Harbors only, tonight, tomorrow, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Digging will be allowed only on the evening tides; tonight’s low tide at the mouth of Willapa Bay is around 7:15 pm, going to about 10 pm Monday night. Fishery managers say that “huge numbers” of clams are available, and they said that there was no time to waste in getting the fall season started. A meeting is also planned this evening in Long Beach, where Fish and Wildlife will talk about the upcoming fall razor clam season. Fishery managers say that they’ll have “good news” at tonight’s meeting.
