Razor Clam Dig on Washington Coastal Beaches @ Check Website for Open Beaches and Low Tides
Feb 27 all-day

WDFW approves seven days of razor clam digging during evening low tides beginning Feb. 26

OLYMPIA – More razor clam digs are planned on coastal beaches as shellfish managers with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) today confirmed the next round of digging can proceed as planned from Feb. 26 through March 4.

“Exceptionally abundant razor clam populations continue to provide good digging for a lot of diggers,” said Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager. “With this weekend’s afternoon low tides, there is no excuse to not to get out for some great razor clamming.”

Diggers are reminded the daily limit has reverted to the standard 15 razor clams. Under state law, a daily limit consists of the first 15 clams dug regardless of size or condition, and each digger’s clams must be kept in a separate container.

Shellfish managers confirmed the following digs during evening low tides will proceed as scheduled, after marine toxin results from the Washington Department of Health showed razor clams were safe to eat:

  1. 26, Saturday, 3:18 P.M.; 0.0 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis
  2. 27, Sunday, 4:16 P.M.; -0.4 feet; Long Beach, Mocrocks
  3. 28, Monday, 5:06 P.M.; -0.8 feet; Long Beach
  4. March 1, Tuesday, 5:50 PM; -0.9 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks
  5. March 2, Wednesday, 6:30 PM; -0.8 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis
  6. March 3, Thursday, 7:07 PM; -0.5 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks
  7. March 4, Friday, 7:42 PM 0.0 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis

Details on these and future digs can be found at wdfw.wa.gov/razorclams.

Not all beaches are open for every dig, so diggers are encouraged to make sure their intended destination is open before heading out. Diggers should also continue to respect coastal communities and residents by following local and state health guidelines.

The most successful digging occurs between one and two hours before the listed time of low tide. No digging is allowed before noon during digs when low tide occurs in the afternoon or evening. Details on these and future digs can be found at wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfishing-regulations/razor-clams.

With the spring fast approaching, Washingtonians should consider purchasing 2022-2023 recreational hunting and fishing licenses before current licenses expire after March 31. Anyone gathering clams in April will need a new 2022-2023 license to participate. All diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach.

All diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach. Licenses, ranging from a three-day razor clam license to an annual combination fishing license or a Fish Washington license, are available from WDFW’s licensing website at fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov/login, and from hundreds of license vendors around the state. WDFW recommends buying your license before visiting coastal beach communities for this razor clam season.

The following tentative spring dig dates were also announced last week, along with low tides and beaches. All dates are tentative pending final marine toxin testing, which usually occurs about a week or less prior to each set of openings.

  1. March 1, Tuesday, 5:50 PM; -0.9 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks
  2. March 2, Wednesday, 6:30 PM; -0.8 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis

WDFW approves seven days of razor clam digging during evening low tides beginning Feb. 26

OLYMPIA – More razor clam digs are planned on coastal beaches as shellfish managers with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) today confirmed the next round of digging can proceed as planned from Feb. 26 through March 4.

“Exceptionally abundant razor clam populations continue to provide good digging for a lot of diggers,” said Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager. “With this weekend’s afternoon low tides, there is no excuse to not to get out for some great razor clamming.”

Diggers are reminded the daily limit has reverted to the standard 15 razor clams. Under state law, a daily limit consists of the first 15 clams dug regardless of size or condition, and each digger’s clams must be kept in a separate container.

Shellfish managers confirmed the following digs during evening low tides will proceed as scheduled, after marine toxin results from the Washington Department of Health showed razor clams were safe to eat:

  1. 26, Saturday, 3:18 P.M.; 0.0 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis
  2. 27, Sunday, 4:16 P.M.; -0.4 feet; Long Beach, Mocrocks
  3. 28, Monday, 5:06 P.M.; -0.8 feet; Long Beach
  4. March 1, Tuesday, 5:50 PM; -0.9 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks
  5. March 2, Wednesday, 6:30 PM; -0.8 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis
  6. March 3, Thursday, 7:07 PM; -0.5 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks
  7. March 4, Friday, 7:42 PM 0.0 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis

Details on these and future digs can be found at wdfw.wa.gov/razorclams.

Not all beaches are open for every dig, so diggers are encouraged to make sure their intended destination is open before heading out. Diggers should also continue to respect coastal communities and residents by following local and state health guidelines.

The most successful digging occurs between one and two hours before the listed time of low tide. No digging is allowed before noon during digs when low tide occurs in the afternoon or evening. Details on these and future digs can be found at wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfishing-regulations/razor-clams.

With the spring fast approaching, Washingtonians should consider purchasing 2022-2023 recreational hunting and fishing licenses before current licenses expire after March 31. Anyone gathering clams in April will need a new 2022-2023 license to participate. All diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach.

All diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach. Licenses, ranging from a three-day razor clam license to an annual combination fishing license or a Fish Washington license, are available from WDFW’s licensing website at fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov/login, and from hundreds of license vendors around the state. WDFW recommends buying your license before visiting coastal beach communities for this razor clam season.

The following tentative spring dig dates were also announced last week, along with low tides and beaches. All dates are tentative pending final marine toxin testing, which usually occurs about a week or less prior to each set of openings.

 

Digging is not allowed before noon for March digs where low tide occurs in the evening:

  1. March 1, Tuesday, 5:50 PM; -0.9 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks
  2. March 2, Wednesday, 6:30 PM; -0.8 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis
  3. March 3, Thursday, 7:07 PM; -0.5 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks

Details on these and future digs can be found at wdfw.wa.gov/razorclams.

Shellfish and seafood enthusiasts can also make plans attend the?Ocean Shores Razor Clam and Seafood Festival?on March 18-20.

Under state law, a daily limit consists of the first 15 clams dug regardless of size or condition, and each digger’s clams must be kept in a separate container. The most successful digging occurs between one and two hours before the listed time of low tide.

Not all beaches are open for every dig, so diggers are encouraged to make sure their intended destination is open before heading out. Diggers should also continue to respect coastal communities and residents by following local and state health guidelines.

With spring quickly approaching, Washingtonians should consider purchasing 2022-2023 recreational hunting and fishing licenses before current licenses expire after March 31. Anyone gathering clams in April will need a new 2022-2023 license to participate. All diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach.

The free annual festival at the Ocean Shores Convention Center celebrates the forests and the beaches of the Washington State coast and the Olympic Peninsula in Grays Harbor.

At the Convention Center, the festival features the Chainsaw Art Show and Auction with 25 carvers creating pieces for the daily auction, more than 40 vendor booths, food booths, beer garden and bar, and live music.

Cash prizes in twill be awarded to winners in three categories. Registration fee is $5 per person with a cap of $30 per team.

The sculptures will be on display until nature blows away the sand.

Also on the beach is the Sand Drawing Celebration by Justin the Circler, Friday and Saturday. Watch as the artists make amazing large geometric drawings in the sand, to be washed away by the next tide. Justin will offer a free class on Friday and Saturday morning, so everyone can make their own sand drawings – on 6 miles of beach!

The Chainsaw Art Show and Auction is one of the largest in the Northwest featuring 25 amazing carvers. In three days, there will be 100 or more chainsaw sculptures created, with an auction each day.
