The next coastal razor clam was approved and will begin Feb. 17 at Twin Harbors with four more beaches opening soon after.
Twin Harbors, which has the highest number of clams available for harvest, will be open for digging Feb. 17-19, and Copalis, Mocrocks, Long Beach and Kalaloch will be open Feb. 18-19. Digging will be allowed from noon to midnight only.
Low tides: Feb. 17, minus-0.9 feet at 5:53 p.m.; Feb. 18, -0.9 at 6:33 p.m.; and Feb. 19, -0.5 at 7:13 p.m.
The first 15 dug regardless of size or condition is a daily limit. Each digger’s limit must be kept in a separate container.
All diggers must have an applicable 2010-11 fishing license to dig razor clams on any beach. A license is required for anyone age 15 or older.
More digs are planned in the spring time during morning tides, and will be announced once shellfish biologists have made their updated inseason harvest estimates.
