More coastal razor clams digs planned next week, and all the way through February

9razor2013The recent coastal razor clam digs were very good with many getting their 15-clam daily limit.

“Clam digging is great and the crowds during this last series of digs (Nov. 20 through Wednesday) have been light,” said Dan Ayres, the head state Fish and Wildlife coastal shellfish manager. “Even with the marginal weather people have been doing OK. “We also got approval for more digs in January and February.”

More digs will happen at Long Beach and Twin Harbors on Dec. 3-9; Mocrocks on Dec. 5-7; and Copalis on Dec. 6. Digging is open each day from noon to midnight only.

More digs are planned at Long Beach and Twin Harbors on Dec. 19-23, Dec. 31-Jan. 7, Jan. 17-24, Jan. 3-Feb. 6 and Feb. 15-22; Mocrocks on Dec. 19-21, Dec. 31-Jan. 4, Jan. 17-18, Jan. 23-24, Jan. 30-Feb. 1 and Feb. 20-22; and Copalis on Dec. 20, Dec. 31-Jan. 3, Jan. 17, Jan. 24, Jan. 31 and Feb. 21.

A daily limit is the first 15 clams dug regardless of size or condition. Each digger’s clams must be kept in a separate container.
