The next razor clam dig will start Monday at Twin Harbors and expand to include three other beaches in the next week. The state Department of Fish and Wildlife on Thursday approved the digs after marine toxin tests showed the clams are safe to eat.

No digging will be allowed at any beach after noon. The best digging takes place one to two hours before low tide. Here is the schedule and low tide times:

Monday: 6:46 a.m.; +0.2 feet; Twin Harbors.

Tuesday: 7:24 a.m.; -0.3 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach.

April 16: 8:03 a.m.; -0.6 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach.

April 17: 8:43 a.m.; -0.8 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach.

April 18: 9:26 a.m.; -0.8 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks.

April 19: 10:14 a.m.; -0.7 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Copalis, Mocrocks.

April 20: 11:06 a.m.; -0.4 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Copalis, Mocrocks.

Diggers can take a maximum of 15 razor clams a day and are required to keep the first 15 they dig.
