Cola St. Shelton, 98584 360-426-4412 "M Bivalves await diggers at upcoming clam dig STAFF REPORT news@masoncoun corn Plenty of fat clams await diggers who turn out for the next razor clam dig, set to run Feb. 26 through March 3 on various ocean beaches. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) approved the dig after marine toxin tests showed the clams are safe to eat. As in previous openings, all digs are scheduled on evening tides. No digging will be allowed on any beach before noon. Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shell- fish manager, said razor clams sam- pled in recent days are noticeably heavier than those tested earlier in the season. "With all the plankton in the wa- ter, the clams seem to be 'fattening' up earlier than usual," Ayres said. "Those clams will make for some tasty meals aider the next opening." Upcoming digs are scheduled on the following dates, followed by the time of the low tides and locations: Thursday, Feb. 27, 5:04 p.m.; -0.7 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks Friday, Feb. 28, 5:49 p.m.; -0.8 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks Saturday, March 1, 6:32 p.m.; -0.7 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks, Copalis Sunday, March 2, 7:13 p.m.; -0.3 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks Monday, March 3, 7:53 p.m.; +0.3 feet; Twin Harbors Ayres noted that beaches open on the most days are those with the most clams available for harvest. Under state law, diggers can take 15 razor clams per day and are required to keep the first 15 they dig. Each dig- ger's clams must be kept in a separate container. All diggers ages 15 or older must have a 2013-14 fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach. Licenses, ranging from a three-day razor clam license to an annual com- bination fishing license, are avail- abIe at fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov and from license vendors around the state.
