Clam diggers have been given the green light to proceed with the season’s second razor-clam dig. The dig is scheduled to start at noon Nov. 5 on five ocean beaches.
The state Department of Fish and Wildlife approved the dig after marine toxin tests confirmed the clams on those beaches are safe to eat. Test showed negligible levels of domoic acid and PCP.
Digging will be allowed at Twin Harbors beach for four days, Nov. 5-8. Four other beaches – Copalis, Mocrocks, Kalaloch and Long Beach – will be open for two days of digging, Nov. 5-6.
