Keep clam! The coastal razor clam dig will be open beginning Friday at Twin Harbors

Time to once again break out and dust off the razor clam gun or shovel in what has been an excellent winter season of clam digging.

The coastal razor clam dig will be open at Twin Harbors this Friday to Monday (Dec. 3-6), followed by Copalis, Mocrocks, Long Beach and Kalaloch opening Saturday and Sunday (Dec. 4-5).

Digging will be open from noon to midnight each day. The daily limit is the first 15 clams dug regardless of size or condition.

Low tides: Friday, minus-0.8 feet at 4:43 p.m.; Saturday, -1.2 at 5:29 p.m.; Sunday, -1.3 at 6:14 p.m.; and Monday, -1.2 at 6:56 p.m.

Digging has been very good this winter when the surf and weather conditions have been ideal.

Clams have been on the smaller size, but Dan Ayres, the head state Fish and Wildlife coastal shellfish biologist says diggers should encounter some larger ones on the lower end of the beach line near low tide change.

Those traveling to the coast should be aware of traffic heading to Copalis and Mocrocks where a revision on eastbound U.S. Highway 101 in Hoquiam due to emergency work on the Simpson Avenue Bridge.
