Thursday, January 10, 2013
LONG BEACH — Razor clam digging is open today through Saturday on the Long Beach Peninsula.
Twin Harbors and Copalis also are open today, with Twin Harbors, Copalis and Mocrocks open on Friday and Saturday.
Low tide tonight is at 5:27 p.m. at -1.3 feet. Low tides are -1.6 feet at 6:14 p.m. on Friday and -1.5 feet at 6:58 p.m. on Saturday.
Twin Harbors also is open on Sunday and Monday.
“Our surveys show we have a lot of clams at Twin Harbors this season, and the digging schedule reflects that,’’ said Dan Ayres, coastal shellfish manager for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. “But digging has been good at the other beaches, too.’’
Diggers are limited to the first 15 clams taken per day. Each digger’s clams are to be kept in a separate container.
An annual razor clam license costs $13 for state residents and $20.70 for others. A three-day license sells for $8.60.
