Clam diggers get a thumbs up for three consecutive mornings at Copalis Beach in Ocean Shores, and a bit further north at Mocrops Beach.
The three-day dig was announced by Dan Ayers, the Washington Dept. of Fish & Wildlife coastal shellfish manager.
Ayers noted that diggers should be aware that the opening switches from evening (previously announced) to morning tides:
- April 7, Thursday, 7:07 a.m.; -0.6 feet; Copalis, Mocrocks
- April 8, Friday, 7:54 a.m.; -1.1 feet, Copalis, Mocrocks
- April 9, Saturday, 8:42 a.m.; -1.3 feet; Copalis, Mocrocks
The agency approved the digs after marine toxin tests showed the clams on those beaches are safe to eat. More dates are expected to be announced for later in April.
The Polynesian is t pefect place to stay, offering the only apartment-style lodging accommodations in Ocean Shores. The affordable, fully- furnished suites provide plenty of room for families and small groups.
