    My boys scout troop wants to go clamming on their next campout which will be within 60-90 minutes of Redmond. Has anyone clammed on the beaches in front of the Forts(Casey or Ebey)? I used to clam on the Skagit mud flats when I was a kid but the health department warns against it.

    Might be a bit past 90 minutes, but close, but I would check out Potlatch State Park and the hood canal area there. public oyster beds you can shuck and eat on the beach and we dug a few steamers to go with our crab when we camped there a few years ago.

    And wear a helmet and a life jacket. Clamming is some pretty extreme shit.

    I'm from Olympia and have no advice for clamming in my area unless you are looking for ones with beards....and if so, just head downtown, best part is there's no limit on the number you can eat.

    Hey man. Don’t hate. Helmet and lifejacket at all times, everywhere, is solid advice for a few people likely reading this thread.
