State fishery managers have approved an evening razor clam dig that will run Feb. 7-12 at Twin Harbors and some of those days at three other ocean beaches.
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) approved the evening dig after marine toxin tests showed the clams on those beaches are safe to eat.
Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager, said the dig will extend for six consecutive evenings at Twin Harbors, the beach with the most clams available for harvest. Long Beach will also be open for digging Feb. 8-10; Copalis and Mocrocks will be open Feb. 8-9.
No digging will be allowed at any beach before noon.
The schedule for the upcoming dig and evening low tides is:
Feb. 7, Thursday, 4:22 p.m., -0.5 ft., Twin Harbors.
Feb. 8, Friday, 5:11 p.m., -0.9 ft., Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Copalis, Mocrocks.
