Fans of razor clams have chances to dig at evening low tides this week after beaches were approved by state Fish and Wildlife.

A promising razor clam dig continues through the weekend on three coastal beaches.

“With all the plankton in the water, the clams seem to be fattening up earlier than usual,” said Dan Ayers, the state Department of Fish and Wildlife’s shellfish manager. “Those clams will make for some tasty meals.”

Twin Harbors is open for digging through Monday. Long Beach and Mocrocks is open through Sunday. Copalis is open on Saturday.

All digs are scheduled on the evening tide and no digging is allowed before noon.

Evening low tides are at 5:49 Friday, 6:32 Saturday, 7:13 Sunday and 7:53 Monday.

Licensed diggers can take as many as 15 clams per day. Each digger must keep the first 15 clams they dig and keep their take in a separate bucket.
