State Fish and Wildlife has announced the tentative final two days of spring razor clam digging on the coast will be May 15-16.
A final decision will be made next week after marine toxin tests are taken.
Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis and Mocrocks will be open May 15 (low tide is minus-1.6 feet at 8:15 a.m.); and Long Beach and Twin Harbors only will be open May 16 (-1.6 at 8:58 a.m.). Kalaloch beach will remain closed. Digging is allowed until noon each day.
The six-day coastal razor clam dig held April 27-May 2 was excellent with just about everyone pulling their 15-clam daily limit from the sandy beaches.
“We had good digging over the last opener,” said Dan Ayres, the head state Fish and Wildlife coastal shellfish biologist.
That dig drew 45,000 diggers to the open coastal beaches, and they averaged 14.85 clams per person (the first 15 dug regardless of size or condition is a daily limit).
