Razor clam dig approved

Twin Harbors will open for late-evening digs Wednesday through Saturday, while Long Beach will open on Friday and Saturday. The digs were approved this afternoon after marine toxin tests showed 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 season.


Depending on the harvest for this dig, the state may announce additional digging opportunities in March, but likely only at Twin Harbors, Ayres said.


Low tide times are: Wednesday, 6:15 p.m., +0.1 feet; Thursday, 6:52 p.m., 0; Friday, 7:27 p.m., +0.1 feet; Saturday, 8:02 p.m., +0.4 feet.
