OLYMPIA — The Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife has tentatively set this year’s schedule for razor clam digs, with the season set to open next month.

“We’re announcing this proposed schedule to give people time to makes plans,” said Dan Ayres, coastal shellfish manager for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW). “However, none of the digs are confirmed until we announce the results of the toxin tests.”

During the first set of digs, scheduled Oct. 7 through Oct. 12, both Twin Harbors and Long Beach will be open all six days, with additional harvest opportunities at Mocrocks and Copalis. Through the end of the year, WDFW has tentatively scheduled a total of 41 days of razor clam digs.

Under state law, diggers can take 15 razor clams per day and are required to keep the first 15 they dig.  Each digger’s clams must be kept in a separate container. Diggers may not harvest any part of another person’s daily limit, unless they possess a designated harvester card.

A schedule of proposed digs is available below. For more information on the digs, click here.  And to learn a little bit more about the clams and for a great instructional video, click here.
