Two coastal beaches open this weekend for razor clams

Shellfish lovers can dig into two coastal beaches for razor clams this weekend.

Digging will be open at Long Beach and Twin Harbors from noon to midnight each day.

All other coastal beaches will remain closed to razor-clam digging that weekend.

“This dig is scheduled only at Long Beach and Twin Harbors, because they have the largest number of clams available for harvest,” Dan Ayres, the state Fish and Wildlife coastal shellfish manager said in a news release. “We’ve tentatively scheduled another dig in early December at all five ocean beaches.”

Low tides: Saturday, minus-0.4 feet at 5:39 p.m.; and Sunday, -0.7 feet at 6:17 p.m.

The larger-sized clams tend to be in the lower sections of the beachline so digging should be best an hour before low tide. Diggers should expect a mixed bag size of clams.
