8-day razor clam dig begins Sunday in Washington

OLYMPIA (AP) — State shellfish managers say razor clam digs begin Sunday on two Washington beaches.

Clam digging is allowed at Twin Harbors and Long Beach each morning through May 4.

Mocrocks beach will also be open to razor clam digging May 2 through May 4.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife approved the clam digs after marine toxin tests showed the clams are safe to eat. No digging will be allowed on any beach after noon.

More razor clam digs may be announced for mid-May after state officials look at harvest levels.

Under state law, diggers can take 15 razor clams per day and are required to keep the first 15 they dig. Each digger’s clams must be kept in a separate container.
