State Fish and Wildlife is expecting an excellent razor clam digging season in 2012-13, and are now accepting public comments on digging days, catch limits and other management options.
Comments will be taken with the seasons beginning around mid-October. Email comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to RazorClams, 48 Devonshire Rd., Montesano, WA 98563. Comment deadline is Oct. 9.
Management options for the upcoming razor clam season are available at the state Fish and Wildlife website.
In the 2011-12 razor clam season, 2.5 million clams were dug for 195,000 digger trips, which was the lowest harvest and effort in the last 12 years.
