As previously mentioned in our posting here, Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife has temporarily increased the limit of allowable razor clams to be harvested at Long Beach ONLY, beginning April 26 and running through May 1.
Limits at Copalis, Mocrocks, and Twin Harbors remains at 15.
And don’t forget; the 2017 Long Beach Razor Clam Festival, held April 29 and 30, coincides with the digs. For more information, visit the festival website at http://longbeachrazorclamfestival.com/.
Additional information on how testing for shellfish safety occurs, and why it is needed, can be found on the Department of Health Shellfish Program website.
Also, be sure to check out the Razor Clam Society beach map located here.
All diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach. Licenses, ranging from a three-day razor clam license to an annual combination fishing license, are available from license vendors around the state and WDFW’s licensing customer service number at (360) 902-2464.
