LONG BEACH — Razor clam digging will be open Friday through Sunday on the Long Beach Peninsula.

Low tide will be -0.9 feet at 5:11 p.m. on Friday, -1.0 feet at 5:56 p.m. on Saturday and -0.9 feet at 6:37 p.m. on Sunday.

With the best digging one to two hours prior to low tide, at least a portion of these digs will be during daylight hours.

Dan Ayres, coastal shellfish manager for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, said both the clams and diggers made a strong showing during the last weekend in January.

"I don't know whether people are shaking off cabin fever or what, but thousands of diggers turned out for the last opening,'' Ayres said. "Most of them went home with their 15-clam limit.''

Twin Harbors beach will be open Feb. 7-12. Copalis and Mocrocks will be open Friday and Saturday.
