Cline Spit and Frye Cove beaches to close to clam and mussel harvest

OLYMPIA -- Beaches at Cline Spit in Dungeness Bay and Frye Cove in Eld Inlet will close to clam, cockle and mussel harvesting at 12:01 a.m. on Sunday, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife announced.

The beaches are being closed because the allowable non-Indian shellfish harvest has been taken. The remaining harvestable shellfish are being reserved for Indian fishers, under the terms of a federal court ruling.

Cline Spit is in Dungeness Bay east of the base of Dungeness Spit. Frye Cove is north of Flapjack Point.
