OLYMPIA, Wash. - Clam diggers have a green light to proceed with the season’s second razor-clam dig, starting at noon Friday, Nov. 5 on five ocean beaches.
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.
Digging will be allowed at Twin Harbors beach for four days, Nov. 5-8. Four other beaches - Copalis, Mocrocks, Kalaloch and Long Beach - will be open for two days of digging, Nov. 5-6.
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.
No digging will be allowed before noon on any of the five razor-clam beaches.
