WDFW Approves Razor Clam Dig Starting Next Week At Two Beaches
State shellfish managers today approved a morning razor clam dig May 8-14 at Twin Harbors and May 10-11 at Long Beach. No digging will be allowed at either beach after noon.
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) approved the dig after marine toxin tests showed the clams at the two beaches are safe to eat.
Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager, said two other razor-clam beaches – Copalis and Mocrocks – are now closed for the season, because harvest guidelines at those beaches have been met.

Digging dates at those beaches, along with morning low tides, are as follows:
