According to a press release from Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife (WDFW), three days of razor clam digs will begin on Jan. 13 at two ocean beaches.
Copalis and Mocrocks were cleared for their first digs of 2017 after marine toxin tests confirmed the clams on those beaches are safe to eat.
According to Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager, “The best digging typically occurs one to two hours before low tide.”
Please note: Digging is not allowed on any beach before noon.
The upcoming dig is approved on the following beaches, dates and evening low tides:
- Jan. 13, Friday, 7:17 p.m.; -1.4 feet; Copalis, Mocrocks
- Jan. 14, Saturday, 7:59 p.m.; -1.0 feet; Copalis, Mocrocks
- Jan. 15, Sunday, 8:40 p.m.; -0.4 feet; Copalis, Mocrocks
