Public invited to learn abour razor clams, provide season input at Sept. 8 meeting in Spokane

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has scheduled the first-ever eastern Washington public meeting on razor clam management on September 8 in Spokane.

The meeting is in response to requests for more eastside input on razor clam digging season setting and management information sharing. Traditional westside public meetings will be announced and held later next month.

In addition to taking input on upcoming fall clam seasons, WDFW razor clam program manager Doug Simons will discuss clam population status, management techniques, tribal co-management, marine toxin closures, and new license changes.

The Spokane meeting on September 8 will run from 7 to 9 p.m at the Spokane Falls Community College, 3410 West Fort George Wright Drive, in the Student Union Building (#17 on campus maps) in lounge rooms A and B.

WDFW will set the fall razor clam season by October after reviewing public comments. Clam enthusiasts unable to attend meetings can obtain information in the Fishing in Washington regulation pamphlet and can provide written comment by September 24 to Simons at Department of Fish and Wildlife, 600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, WA 98501-1091 or by e-mail to
