OLYMPIA - Fishery managers have announced three more razor clam digs through the end of the year.

Here on the Peninsula, digging is set for noon until midnight Nov. 3 to 5 if marine toxin tests show the clams on those beaches are safe to eat, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife announced last week.

WDFW has tentatively scheduled digs Dec. 2 to 3 and over the New Year's holiday on Dec. 31 and Jan. 1.

"The low tide schedule also allowed for a New Years Eve razor clam dig last year," said Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager. "Many folks stayed on the beach long after the low tide, gathering with friends around campfires and enjoying a uniquely Northwest tradition for welcoming in the new year."
