Two Days of Digs & Ocean Shores Razor Clam Festival

According to a press release from Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), State shellfish managers have approved two days of digs after marine toxin tests showed the clams are safe to eat.

The approved digs will begin on Friday, March 16 and run through Saturday, March 17.

March 16 & 17 is also the annual Ocean Shores Razor Clam Festival.

Be sure to check the Beach Map to ensure you are on the approved Beach.

Upcoming digs are scheduled on the following dates, beaches and low tides:

  • March 16, Friday, 7:03 p.m.; +0.2 feet; Copalis, Mocrocks
  • March 17, Saturday, 7:36 p.m.; +0.2 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis, Mocrocks

The DAILY LIMIT per person is 15 clams, no matter what condition they are in, once removed from the sand. That limit is subject to change. Always check with official sources if you have any questions. Digging prior to Noon during the Fall-Winter Season on the approved days is not allowed. All diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach. And, each digger must keep their razor clams in a separate container. Don’t mix your clams. 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.
