HARVEST PROFILE

This is an excellent beach for Manila clams and native littleneck clams. The best spot is above the oyster beds in sand and gravel substrate. Horse clams and geoducks can be found in the lower tide zone below the oysters in sand and mud. Cockles are found in good numbers near or on the surface on the extensive sand flats.

This is an excellent beach for oysters. Before it was acquired by WDFW, this beach was a commercial oyster beach.

There is also a ravine just north of the houses located near the southern boundary . When in doubt please stay well within these landmarks to avoid trespassing.
