The next series of coastal razor clam digs begin this Friday along with more dates set for January and February.

This includes a popular New Year’s Eve dig that in past year has drawn more than 20,000 to the coastal beaches.

Digging has been excellent since it reopened in October when the weather cooperated. The last digs on Dec. 13-16 had 9,500 diggers averaging 13.5 clams per person (the first 15 clams dug is a daily limit).

Upcoming digs are: Friday, Dec. 28 at Twin Harbors (low tide is minus-0.3 feet at 6:42 p.m.); Saturday, Dec. 29 (-0.3 at 7:15 p.m.) at Twin Harbors, Long Beach and Mocrocks; and Sunday and Monday, Dec. 30-31 (-0.2 at 7:47 p.m. and 0.0 at 8:20 p.m.) at Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks and Copalis.

Other tentative dates are: Jan. 8-9, Jan. 13-14, Feb. 7 and Feb. 11-12 at Twin Harbors; Jan. 10 at Twin Harbors, Long Beach and Copalis; Jan. 11-12, Jan. 26 and Feb. 8-9 at Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Copalis and Mocrocks; and Jan. 25, Jan. 27, Feb. 10 and Feb. 23-24 at Long Beach and Twin Harbors.
