A few more coastal beaches added to planned razor clam digs in March and April

clam5 (2)State Fish and Wildlife has added more beaches to the coast razor clam digs during late March and April.

The first added digging opportunity will be at Long Beach on March 31, followed by digs at Mocrocks and Copalis beaches in mid-April.

Final approval on all digs depends on marine-toxin test results that are usually made the week before each series of digs.

Digging dates are:

Wednesday, March 26 (plus-0.3 feet at 3:52 p.m.) at Twin Harbors; Thursday, March 27, (0.1 at 4:48 p.m.) at Twin Harbors; Friday, March 28 (0.0 at 5:38 p.m.) at Twin Harbors, Long Beach and Mocrocks; and Saturday, March 29 (0.0 at 6:23 p.m.) at Twin Harbors, Long Beach and Mocrocks.

Digging then switches to morning low tides on:

Sunday, March 30 (minus-0.1 at 6:53 a.m.) at Twin Harbors, Long Beach and Mocrocks; Monday, March 31 (-0.5 at 7:39 a.m.) at Twin Harbors and Long Beach; Tuesday, April 1 (-0.7 at 8:22 a.m.) at Twin Harbors and Long Beach; Wednesday, April 2 (-0.6 at 9:05 a.m.) at Twin Harbors and Long Beach; and Thursday, April 3 (-0.3 at 9:49 a.m.) at Twin Harbors and Long Beach.

Monday, April 14 (plus-0.2 feet at 6:46 a.m.) at Twin Harbors; Tuesday, April 15 (-0.3 at7:24 a.m.) at Twin Harbors and Long Beach; Wednesday, April 16 (-0.6 at 8:03 a.m.) at Twin Harbors and Long Beach; Thursday, April 17 (-0.8 at 8:43 a.m.) at Twin Harbors and Long Beach; Friday, April 18 (-0.8 at 9:26 a.m.) at Twin Harbors, Long Beach and Mocrocks; Saturday, April 19 (-0.7 at 10:14 a.m.) at Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Copalis and Mocrocks; and Sunday, April 19 (-0.4 at 11:06 a.m.) at Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Copalis and Mocrocks.

No digging is allowed on any beach after noon beginning March 30 with the seasonal switch to morning tides. Lastly, the final day that a 2013-14 fishing license is valid is March 31. Starting April 1, diggers age 15 or older must have a 2014-15 fishing license to harvest razor clams.
