A series of morning razor-clam digs have been scheduled for March and April, as long as test show the clams are safe to eat.

“We’re announcing tentative dates now so people can get them on their calendars,” Dan Ayres, coastal shellfish manager for the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, said in a news release. “We’ll confirm the dates once the test results are available.”

Unlike the previous digs this season, these digs are timed to coincide with morning low tides. No digging will be allowed on any beach after noon.

The proposed digs are:

  • March 10: (7:39 am -0.3 feet) Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis, Mocrocks
  • March 11: (9:28 am -0.4 feet) Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis, Mocrocks
  • March 24: (8:25 am +0.3 feet) Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis, Mocrocks
  • March 25: (8:59 a.m., +0.3 feet) Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks
  • April 7: (7:36 a.m., -1.2 feet) Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks, Kalaloch
  • April 8: (8:23 a.m., -1.5 feet) Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks, Kalaloch
