OLYMPIA – Clam diggers have a green light to proceed with an evening razor-clam dig that starts Friday, Dec. 3 at Twin Harbors and expands to four other ocean beaches the next day.
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) approved the dig after marine toxin tests confirmed the clams on those beaches are safe to eat.
Twin Harbors, which has the highest number of clams available for harvest, will be open for digging Dec. 3-6. The four other beaches – Copalis, Mocrocks, Long Beach and Kalaloch – will be open for two days of digging, Dec. 4-5.
No digging will be allowed before noon on any of the five razor-clam beaches.
The National Park Service scheduled the dig at Kalaloch Beach, which is located within the Olympic National Park, to coincide with those at the other beaches.
