Another coastal razor clam dig annoucement coming today

It sounds like another coastal razor clam dig is looming on the horizon sometime early this month.

Dan Ayres, the head state Fish and Wildlife coastal shellfish biologist informed me via phone this morning that fisheries was working on a press release set to come out this afternoon.

There is no word on specific dates and what beaches will be open just yet.

The last dig on April 24-26 produced pretty much limits for anyone who went to the open coastal beaches.

“I checked on three different beaches and didn’t talk to a single sole who didn’t have a limit of clams, Ayres said. “It was a mixed bag of clams as far as size goes, but they are still nice in size.”

A total of 53,000 digger trips were taken coast-wide, and 15-clam daily limits per digger for virtually everyone except those who were on the south part of Long Beach where digging isn’t that great.
