Last razor clam dig of season begins Tuesday

OLYMPIA (AP) — The last razor clam dig of the season begins today on Washington beaches.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife approved the digs after marine toxin tests showed the clams are safe to eat. Digging is allowed until noon at a series of beaches along the coast, beginning with Twin Harbors and Long Beach Tuesday and Wednesday.

The season wraps up on Sunday with a morning dig at Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Copalis and Mocrocks.

Under state law, diggers can take 15 razor clams per day and are required to keep the first 15 they dig.

Razor clam diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable 2014-15 fishing license to harvest razor clams on state beaches.
