WDFW approves razor clam dig starting Jan. 27


January 26, 2017

Razor clam diggers can look forward to a five-day opening beginning Jan. 27 at Copalis beach, overlapping with three days of digging at Mocrocks.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) approved the opening on evening tides at those two beaches after marine toxin tests confirmed the clams on the beaches are safe to eat.

Diggers should be aware that only Copalis beach is open the first two days of the dig, said Dan Ayres, coastal shellfish manager for WDFW.

The upcoming dig is approved on the following beaches, dates and evening low tides:

Jan. 27, Friday, 6:26 p.m .; -0.5 feet; Copalis;

Jan. 28, Saturday, 7:01 p.m .; -0.6 feet; Copalis;

Jan. 29, Sunday, 7:37 p.m .; -0.5 feet; Copalis, Mocrocks;

Jan. 30, Monday, 8:13 p.m .; -0.3 feet; Copalis, Mocrocks;

Jan. 31, Tuesday, 8:50 p.m .; 0.2 feet; Copalis, Mocrocks.
