The next razor clam dig will open Wednesday and will include the first daytime low tides of the season.

The switch from evening to morning digs reflects the moon’s seasonal effect on the tides, said Dan Ayres, coastal shellfish manager for the state Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Ayres also noted that diggers will have to buy a 2014 license to participate in digs after March 31.

Digging is best an hour or two before low tide. Here are the dates and times for the low tide:

Wednesday: 3:52 p.m., 0.3 feet, Twin Harbors.

Thursday: 4:48 p.m., 0.1 feet, Twin Harbors.

Friday: 5:38 p.m., 0.0 feet, Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks.

Saturday: 6:23 p.m., 0.0 feet, Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks.
