An increase in the clam population because of natural recruitment and enhancement by the state will allow digging at Dosewallips State Park to open a month earlier.

The state Department of Fish and Wildlife announced late Wednesday that the sport clam fishing at the park will open March 1. The season, open for all clams, will run through Oct. 31. Last season, digging at the park didn’t open until April 1.

Department employees have augmented the natural population with additional Manila clams, said an agency news release.

The park is located in Jefferson County on the west side of Hood Canal, just north of Brinnon.
