Don’t put away that shovel, razor clam gun and rubber boots just yet.
Long Beach and Twin Harbors will be open for digging May 3-8 until noon each day. Mocrocks Beach, which extends north from the Copalis River to the southern boundary of the Quinault Indian Reservation, will also be open for razor-clam digging May 7-8 until noon each day.
The upcoming digs come on the heels of the most recent ones that occurred from April 19-23 where digging was excellent.
Diggers at Twin Harbors averaged 14.8 clams per person (the first 15 clams dug is a daily limit); at Long Beach it was 15.0; at Copalis it was 14.8; and at Mocrocks it was 15.0.
Two beaches — Copalis and Kalaloch — are closed for the season, noting that the April dig brought Copalis Beach up to 98.8 percent of the state’s harvest quota and that doesn’t leave enough room to keep it open for the upcoming digs.
