HARVEST PROFILE

Quilcene Boat Ramp is a small beach that fronts the parking area for the boat ramp and the Quilcene Yacht Club. It is a popular beach because of the easy access. All of the clam and oyster harvest on this beach occurs to the north of the boat ramp. This is a good beach for Manila clams. Native littleneck clams are also available on this beach as well as some butter clams.

There are some oysters on this beach.

When open for harvest, Quilcene Bay WDFW Tidelands is recommended as a good altermnate to Quilcene Boat Ramp. It has a much larger harvest area and more clam and oyster resource.
