Harvest profile

This beach is mostly rocky and digging is difficult but there are some butter clams, native littleneck clams, Manila clams, horse clams and cockles present. There are geoducks in the sand below the rocky zone at extreme low tides (-2.0 feet or lower).

This is an excellent oyster beach.
