ABERDEEN, Wash. (AP) -- State fishery managers have approved a series of morning razor clam digs between April 21 and 23 at several ocean beaches. The digs are being announced after the latest round of marine toxin tests showed the clams are safe to eat.

With the state's razor clam season nearing an end, Long Beach and Twin Harbors will be open for digging all three days, while Copalis and Mocrocks will be open on Monday, April 23 only.

No digging will be allowed on any beaches after noon.

Dan Ayres of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife tells KBKW radio says there are just enough clams available to harvest at Copalis and Mocrocks for one day. The department is waiting to see what happens at the other beaches before making any other announcements.
