Razor clam fans may get two more days of digging this season.


The state Department of Fish and Wildlife said if marine toxin tests are favorable, Long Beach and Twin Harbors will open Saturday and Sunday, while Copalis and Mocrocks will open Saturday only. Kalaloch Beach remains closed.



The final decision will be announced once test results show whether the clams are safe to eat.



The following digs are tentatively scheduled on morning tides, with no digging allowed after noon.



The low tide times are: Saturday, 7:23 a.m., -1.2 feet, and Sunday, 8:02 a.m., -1.2 feet.



Dan Ayres, coastal shellfish manager, said the department was able to offer one more dig because there are sufficient clams remaining in the total allowable catch for those beaches.
