The news came out too late to change the story we had in Sunday’s Adventure section, but the first razor-clam dig of the season will take place Friday and Saturday.
The state Department of Fish and Wildlife approved the dig after marine toxin tests on all four beaches confirmed the clams are safe to eat.
The beaches that will be open are Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis and Mocrocks. No digging will be allowed either day before noon.
For best results, clammers should start digging an hour or two before the evening low tide. On Friday the low tide of -1.8 feet will occur at 8:28 p.m. The low tide Saturday will be -1.5 feet at 9:17 p.m.
