bxlowtidepic06

The next upcoming low tide series in Puget Sound and Hood Canal for gathering clams and oysters begins Wednesday, and this will be some of the most extreme leading to widespread beach exposure of the summer even for the elusive geoduck.

Northern Puget Sound Low tides are: Wednesday, July 9, minus-1.1 feet at 8:56 a.m.; Thursday, July 10, -2.1 at 9:42 a.m.; Friday, July 11, -2.7 at 10:27 a.m.; Saturday, July 12, -3.0 at 11:13 a.m.; Sunday, July 13, -3.0 at noon; Monday, July 14, -2.5 at 12:46 p.m.; and Tuesday, July 15, -1.6 at 1:34 p.m.

Before heading to a beach know the rules first by checking the regulation pamphlet. Then check the state Fish and Wildlife web site at http://wdfw.wa.gov, and their hotline at 866-880-5431 or http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish/.

State Fish and Wildlife also offers a good interactive shellfish map at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish/beaches/.

Lastly, call the marine biotoxin hotline at 800-562-5632 or visit the Department of Health web site at www.doh.wa.gov/CommunityandEnvironment/Shellfish.aspx.
