Welcome Fall!

October Newsletter 2017

Fall has arrived and with it comes cooler weather; it means it’s time for razor clam season to start. WDFW has tentatively set dates from October through December pending safe toxin level testing. The first two days to dig are Oct 6th and 7th. All tides are in the evening and on October 6 and 7 all beaches are planned to be open.

With evening digs, comes more dangers as most tides are after dark, seeing the surf coming in is harder, lights of some sorts are needed to see the holes and it is usually colder when digging. Remember to dress warmer and in layers so you can remove extra clothing rather than get cold. Current Clam Digs
