Razor clam season continues Jan. 30 and 31 on some Pacific beaches

OLYMPIA -- Some coastal beaches will open for razor clam digging on Jan. 30 and 31, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) announced today.

The beaches open for p.m. tides on those two dates are:

  • Long Beach
  • Twin harbors
  • Mocrocks (the beach from Copalis River north to the southern boundary of the Quinault Indian Reservation)
The two-day season is in response to requests WDFW received at public meetings held last fall.

Razor clam diggers are reminded that they need a 1998 Shellfish/Seaweed License. Resident diggers age 15 to 69 need a $5 license, senior licenses cost $3. The daily limit is the first 15 clams dug, regardless of size or condition.
