Keep clam as more digs on the coastal beaches are coming up soon

Time break out the razor clam gun or shovel, and head to the coast for more spring digging time on coastal beaches.

Coastal razor clam digging will be open at Long Beach and Twin Harbors this Saturday through Monday (April 21-23), and at Copalis and Mocrocks on Monday (April 23) only. Digging will be allowed until noon each day.

This will likely be the last digs of spring at Copalis and Mocrocks, which are nearing their harvest quotas. Long Beach and Twin Harbors may have more depending on what happens after the upcoming digs.

Since October, there have been 169,000 digger trips with close to 2.2 million clams harvested, and digging has been excellent.

Low tides: Saturday, April 21, minus-0.3 feet at 7:28 a.m.; Sunday, April 22, -0.4 at 8:01 a.m.; and Monday, April 23, -0.4 at 8:35 a.m.
