The size of coastal razor clams is improving as they start to fatten up heading into spring spawning time.

Here is quick rundown on how big they’ve gotten from random sampling conducted by Dan Ayres, the head state Fish and Wildlife coastal shellfish manager and his survey crews:

The average size of clams harvested in January were 4.1 inches (compared to 3.6 inches in October) at Long Beach; 4.5 inches (4.1) at Long Beach; 4.7 inches (4.2) at Copalis; and 4.5 (4.0) at Mocrocks.

The next series of digs are Jan. 25-27 at Long Beach and Twin Harbors, and Jan. 26 at Copalis and Mocrocks beaches. Digging will be open after noon each day.

Low tides: Jan. 25, 0.0 feet at 5:44 p.m.; Jan. 26, -0.2 at 6:18 p.m.; and Jan. 27, -0.2 at 6:50 p.m.
