It’s almost time to dig into what should be some great fall digging for razor clams on coastal beaches.

The first tentative digs of the season will start Oct. 13 at Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis and Mocrocks.

State Fish and Wildlife will make the final approval about a week prior once marine toxin testing show the clams are safe to eat.

Dates are:

Saturday, Oct. 13 (plus-0.3 feet at 5:41 p.m.) at Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis and Mocrocks.

Sunday, Oct. 14, (-0.5 at 6:26 p.m.) at Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis and Mocrocks.

Monday, Oct. 15 (-1.1 at 7:11 p.m.) at Long Beach and Twin Harbors.

Tuesday, Oct. 16 (-1.5 at 7:57 p.m.) and Wednesday, Oct. 17 (-1.6 at 8:44 p.m.) and Thursday, Oct. 18 (-1.4 at 9:34 p.m.) at Twin Harbors only.

Diggers must keep the first 15 clams dug, and each digger’s clams must be kept in a separate containers.

Public comments are still being taken on the upcoming fall, winter and spring seasons through Oct. 9.

For more information go to the state Fish and Wildlife website.
