Next razor clam dig gets go-ahead

An eight-day razor clam dig set to begin Friday, Jan. 30 on Washington's southwest coast beaches has been given final clearance by state officials.

The southernmost razor clam beach management sectors Long Beach, and Twin Harbors will be available to diggers all eight days. Mocrocks beach sector, north of Grays Harbor, will be open the first three days only and the Copalis Beach sector just on day two of this series.

These are evening low tide digs (lawful to gather razor clams from noon to midnight only). Diggers must keep first 15 razors they unearth regardless of size or condition. On day one the low slack is at 3:43 p.m.

Diggers must have some version of a 2014-15 Washington personal use (sport) license that is good specifically for the taking of razor clams.

Another personal use razor clam consecutive dig day sequence is tentatively set to start Feb. 15 if marine toxin levels remain in check.
