OLYMPIA - Clam diggers on Tuesday got the go-ahead to proceed with a razor-clam dig Feb. 6 through 9, the Washington Department of Fish and announced.
Twin Harbors will open for four late-evening digs Feb. 6 through 9, while Long Beach will open on Feb. 8 and 9 only. The digs were approved after marine toxin tests showed the clams were safe to eat.
As with previous digs this season, digging will be allowed only during the hours between noon and midnight.
"We want to make sure there will be enough clams to support a dig at all four beaches this spring," Dan Ayres, coastal shellfish manager for WDFW, said. "These are popular digs because they're held on morning tides."
