Razor clam dig set for February

The state Department of Fish and Wildlife announced this morning that there could be a razor clam dig on two ocean beaches early next month.


Twin Harbors would be open for four late-evening digs Feb. 6-9, while Long Beach would open on Feb. 8 and 9 only. Department officials will approve the digs after marine toxin tests show the clams were safe to eat.


As with previous digs this season, digging will be allowed only during the hours between noon and midnight.


The February schedule includes two extra days for Twin Harbors but no days for Mocrocks or Copalis due to the low number of clams available for harvest, said Dan Ayres, state coastal shellfish manager. Kalaloch is closed for the entire 2007-08 season.
