WDFW Beach Season Information

Clams, mussels and oysters CLOSED to harvest until further notice due to conservation concerns.
Washington Department of Health (DOH) cautions that clams, oysters, and mussels from Lofall are not fit for human consumption at any time.

The beach within 360 feet from the mouth of Lofall Creek near the southern park boundary is closed year-round due to bacteria loading from the creek.

WDFW shellfish seasons indicate the specific times of year when harvesting is permitted. Before heading to the beach, please also check the Department of Health (DOH) information below which is related to health of the shellfish and may be updated daily. To harvest on this beach, it must be both during the WDFW approved season and approved by the DOH.

Harvest profile

Due to damage to the oyster bed in 2010, this beach is closed to shellfish harvest for conservation reasons. Annual surveys are performed to track the oyster population's recovery. Clams are closed to prevent potential damage to the oysters as a result of digging activity. When open, the clam season and oyster season will be the same.
