The final days of the spring coastal razor clam dig are expected to draw huge crowds as Long Beach and Twin Harbors are open now through Sunday (May 5-8) until noon each day. Mocrocks Beach will also be open this Saturday and Sunday (May 7-8) until noon each day.
“It has been spectacular clam digging the past two days (Twin Harbors and Long Beach were open Tuesday and Wednesday), and fairly easy limits (the first 15 clams dug is a daily limit) with lots of happy diggers,” said Dan Ayres, the head state Fish and Wildlife coastal shellfish biologist. “We are also seeing some nice sized clams at Grayland where they’re averaging 4 1/2 inches.”
A note of caution: Those planning to dig on the northern beaches should be aware that Copalis Beach south of the Copalis River (including Ocean Shores) is closed for the season.
All of Mocrocks beaches north of Copalis River to the southern boundary of the Quinault Indian Reservation are open including Iron Springs, Roosevelt Beach, Pacific Beach and Moclips.
