This is the last Saturday for smelt dipping on the Cowlitz, and it looks like the prospects for any success by dippers is going to be the same as the other Saturday through the month, and that prospect is zero. For yet another week, commercial dippers report that no smelt were harvested in the main stem of the Columbia, and there are no signs of smelt available anywhere in the system. There is an opportunity to get outside this weekend, however, as all five Washington razor clam beaches are open for digging on the evening tides. Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis and Mocrocks are open for digging today, tomorrow and Sunday; Kalaloch will also also open for digging tomorrow and Sunday. In addition, Long Beach and Twin Harbors will be open for digging on Monday’s evening tide. Would-be diggers will need to have a current shellfish harvest license.
