Razor clam dig OK’d for Easter weekend!
Razor Clam diggers have a green light to dig razor clams Easter weekend, March 25-27
at Mocrocks Beach, just north of Ocean Shores.
This is great news for our guests, said Ginny Hll, manager of the The Polynesian Resort. “Last weekends’ dig was incredibly bountiful. It didn’t take long at all for clam diggers to reach their limits.”
She encouraged those interested in clamming this weekend to books rooms at The Polynesian now.
The Polynesian offers the only apartment-style lodging accommodations in Ocean Shores. The affordable, fully furnished suites provide plenty of room for families and small groups. With complete kitchens, it’s easy to cook in.
The dig at Mocrocks is scheduled on morning tides and ends at noon each day. Low tides during the three-day dig at Mocrocks are:
- March 25, Friday, 8:31 a.m.; 0.7 feet; Mocrocks
- March 26, Saturday, 9:06 a.m.; 0.6 feet; Mocrocks
- March 27, Sunday, 9:42 a.m.; 0.7 feet; Mocrocks
Mocrocks Beach extends from the Copalis River to the south boundary of the Quinault Indian Reservation.
The timing is perfect. The town’s Easter Egg hunt hosted by the Fire Department is set for Easter Sunday at 1pm at the Ocean Shores Elementary school. All ages are welcome to join the fun.
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), which sets seasons for the fishery, also announced proposed dates for clam digging on April 7-10 and April 23, 25-26. They will confirm those dates about a week prior.
