Another round of razor clam digs have been approved, beginning Friday (March 6), with digs at Long Beach, Twin Harbors and Mocrocks, state shellfish managers announced Thursday.

Long Beach and Twin Harbors will be open each evening tide during the six-day dig; Mocrocks and Copalis beaches will alternating days.

The approved dig is for the following beaches, dates and low tides:

March 6, Friday, 4:11 pm, -0.2 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks

March 7, Saturday, 4:59 pm, -0.7 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis

March 8, Sunday, 6:43 pm, -1.0 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks

March 9, Monday, 7:25 pm, -1.0 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis

March 10, Tuesday, 8:06 pm, -0.8 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Mocrocks

March 11, Wednesday, 8:46 pm, -0.2 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis

No digging is allowed before noon for allowed digs, when low tide occurs in the evening.

“With abundant clams and smaller crowds, this time of year is great for digging enthusiasts,” said Dan Ayres, Department of Fish and Wildlife coastal shellfish manager. “The sun is setting later as spring approaches and diggers who head out early often fill their bags before dark.”
