Another way to take advantage of the warm weather this week is to take part in the razor clam dig that will open Wednesday.
The dig will run through May 14 at Twin Harbors and Friday and Saturday at Long Beach. No digging will be allowed at either beach after noon.
Here are the low tide times for this dig:
- Wednesday: 6:22 a.m., -0.5 feet, Twin Harbors
- Thursday, 7 a.m., -0.8 feet, Twin Harbors
- Friday, 7:37 am, -0.9 feet, Twin Harbors and Long Beach
- Saturday: 8:12 a.m., -0.8 feet, Twin Harbors and Long Beach
- Sunday: 8:48 a.m., -0.7 feet, Twin Harbors
- Monday: 9:23 a.m., -0.5 feet, Twin Harbors
- May 14: 10:01 a.m., -0.2 feet, Twin Harbors
Dan Ayres, coastal shellfish manager for the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, said there will be no more digs this season at Copalis and Mocrocks. The harvest guidelines at those popular beaches have been met. Kalaloch never opened this season because shellfish managers are concerned about low clam populations there.
To participate, diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable 2013-14 fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach. Licenses are available online at https://fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov, by phone toll free at 866-320-9933 and from license dealers around the state.
