Next coastal razor clam digs approved for April 9-14

Spring6The next coastal razor clam digs were approved for April 9-14.

The opening dates are: April 9-11 at Twin Harbors; and April 12-14 at Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Copalis and Mocrocks. Digging is allowed until noon each day.

An estimated 39,600 digger trips were taken March 28-31 coastwide (23,000 trips occurred last Saturday) and 594,000 clams were harvested for an average of 15.0 clams per person (the first 15 clams dug are a daily limit).

Clam wastage (where diggers leave clams dug on top of beaches in search of bigger ones) was a big issue especially at Twin Harbors.

Other tentative opening dates in April are:

Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Copalis and Mocrocks – Friday, April 26, -1.5 at 7:38 a.m.; Saturday, April 27, -1.7 at 8:24 a.m.; Sunday, April 28, -1.7 at 9:11 a.m.

Twin Harbors, Long Beach and Mocrocks – Monday, April 29, -1.5 at 10:01 a.m.

Twin Harbors – Tuesday, April 30, -1.0 at 10:55 a.m.
