The next coastal razor clam digs March 7-11 was approved by state Fish and Wildlife.

Dan Ayres, the head state Fish and Wildlife coastal shellfish manager said an extra evening of digging – March 8 – was added to the original schedule at Long Beach, because diggers harvested fewer clams than expected there last month.

In planning a trip to the beach, all diggers should be aware that Daylight Saving Time starts March 10, Ayres said.

Upcoming digs are:

Thursday, March 7 (low tide of plus-0.3 feet at 3:06 p.m.) at Twin Harbors; Friday, March 8 (0.0 at 4:01 p.m.) at Twin Harbors and Long Beach; Saturday, March 9, (minus-0.2 at 4:50 p.m.) at Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Copalis and Mocrocks; Sunday, March 10 (-0.2 at 6:33 p.m.) at Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Copalis and Mocrocks; and Monday, March 11 (0.0 at 7:12 p.m.) at Twin Harbors.

Morning digs will occur March 28 and March 31 at Twin Harbors; March 29-30 at Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Copalis and Mocrocks. More digs are planned in April and May.
