Clamming open for 2 days at Mocrocks


Clam diggers can make plans for a two-day razor clam dig on at Mocrocks this Friday and Saturday.

State shellfish managers with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) approved the dig after marine toxin tests showed the clams are safe to eat.

Digs are scheduled on the following dates, beaches and low tides:

March 2, Friday, 6:54 p.m.; -0.8 feet; Mocrocks;

March 3, Saturday, 7:34 p.m.; -0.3 feet; Mocrocks.

Mocrocks is located between the Copalis River and the southern boundary of the Quinault Indian Reservation, just south of the Moclips River, and includes Iron Springs, Roosevelt Beach, Seabrook, Pacific Beach, and Moclips.

The best digging typically occurs one to two hours before low tide; no digging is allowed at any beach before noon.
