    WDFW approves 7 days of razor clam digging

    OLYMPIA – Seven days of razor clam digging will get underway beginning Sunday, Jan. 28, on various coastal beaches.

    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.

    Four beaches will be open for digging on different days throughout seven-day period, said Dan Ayres, coastal shellfish manager with WDFW.

    "Not every beach is open every day – so folks need to be sure they know if the beach they are headed for is open," Ayres said. "We’ve staggered the days various beaches are open to maximize the length of the opening."

    The best digging typically occurs one to two hours before low tide, said Ayres, noting that digging is not allowed at any beach before noon.

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

    Jan. 28, Sunday, 4:06 p.m.; -0.4 feet; Mocrocks
    Jan. 29, Monday, 4:59 p.m.; -1.0 feet; Copalis
    Jan. 30, Tuesday, 5:47 p.m.; -1.5 feet; Twin Harbors, Mocrocks
    Jan. 31, Wednesday, 6:33 p.m.; -1.6 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis
    Feb. 1, Thursday, 7:17 p.m.; -1.5 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks
    Feb. 2, Friday, 8:00 p.m.; -1.0 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis
    Feb. 3, Saturday, 8:42 p.m.; -0.4; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks
