The daily limit is the first 15 clams dug regardless of size or condition, and each digger’s clams must be kept in a separate container.
For the most part success has been very good this past winter, and the recent 7-days of digging in mid-March generated near limits of clams on all four open beaches. An estimated 27,533 diggers took home 388,655 razor clams for an average of 14.1 razor clams per digger.
Anyone digging razor clams beginning April 1 will need a new recreational fishing or shellfishing license. All diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach.
