The next series of coastal razor clam digs will coincide this Saturday with the Ocean Shores Razor Clam Festival.

Digging will be open this weekend at Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis and Mocrocks beaches. Digging on Saturday is open from noon to midnight, and then is open Sunday from 12:01 a.m. to noon.

Long Beach and Twin Harbors will also remain open March 21-22 from 12:01 a.m. to noon. Kalaloch will remain closed during this series of digs.

Low tides: March 19, minus-0.1 feet at 7:04 p.m.; March 20, -0.5 at 7:36 a.m.; March 21, -0.9 at 8:23 a.m.; and March 22, -1.0 at 9:12 a.m.

The Ocean Shores Razor Clam Festival is 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 19 at the Ocean Shores Convention Center. There will be a pancake breakfast, artisan marketplace, kids games and activities, craft and food vendors, live entertainment and best decorated clam shovel/gun contest. Chef Kathy Casey will also host a best chowder of Washington contest.

For more information go to the Ocean Shores Razor Clam Festival Web site.

Daily limit is the first 15 clams dug regardless of size or condition. Each digger’s limit must be kept in a separate container. Diggers age 15 or older are required to have a valid 2010-11 license to participate.

Another dig is tentatively planned on April 7-9 at Long Beach and Twin Harbors if marine toxin tests show the clams are safe to eat. More digs are also planned for later in April as well.
