Razor Clam Dig on Washington Coastal Beaches @ Check Website for Open Beaches and Low Tides
Oct 30 all-day

WDFW approves seven days of coastal razor clam digs beginning Oct. 24

OLYMPIA – Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) shellfish managers confirmed today razor clam digging opportunities at Long Beach, Twin Harbors, and Copalis beaches from Oct. 24-30.

“Digging should continue to be great on the open beaches,” said Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager. “Most of the 26,000 harvesters who went out during the recent opener found easy digging, and if the weather cooperates, we’re expecting more of the same.”

The following digs during evening (p.m.) low tides will proceed as scheduled, after marine toxin results from the Washington Department of Health (DOH) showed razor clams are safe to eat:

  1. Oct. 24, Monday, 6:44 p.m.; 0.0 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis
  2. Oct. 25, Tuesday, 7:24 p.m.; -0.6 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors
  3. Oct. 26, Wednesday, 8:05 p.m.; -1.0 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis
  4. Oct. 27, Thursday, 8:48 p.m.; -1.1 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors
  5. Oct. 28, Friday, 9:35 p.m.; -1.0 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis
  6. Oct. 29, Saturday, 10:28 p.m.; -0.7 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors
  7. Oct. 30, Sunday, 11:27 p.m.; -0.3 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis

The latest marine toxin levels at Mocrocks beaches were below the health guideline level. However, DOH requires two test samples taken 10 days apart, must fall under the health guideline level before a beach can reopen for razor clam digging.

WDFW conducted summer assessments showing a strong razor clam population except at Kalaloch, which is closed for 2022-2023 season. More tentative dates are planned on Nov. 6-13 and Nov. 22-28 (including the Thanksgiving holiday), and during December. Final approval is usually announced about one week prior to each digging series.

Not all beaches are open for every dig, so diggers are encouraged to make sure their intended destination is open before heading out. The most successful digging occurs between one and two hours before the listed time of low tide.

Digging is prohibited in the razor clam reserves, which are marked by 10-foot poles with signs. The reserves are located just south of the Ocean City approach on Copalis; and 2.8 miles north of the Oysterville approach on Long Beach.

The daily limit is 15 razor clams per person. 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.

All diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach. Licenses may be purchased on WDFW’s licensing website, and from hundreds of license vendors around the state. Options include a three-day razor clam license to an annual combination fishing license. WDFW recommends buying your license before visiting coastal beach communities.

For more information on future tentative digs, go to the WDFW’s razor clam webpage. The updated 2022-23 Razor Clam Management Plan is available on the WDFW’s website.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife works to preserve, protect, and perpetuate fish, wildlife and ecosystems while providing sustainable fish and wildlife recreational and commercial opportunities.
