Clam Digging on Copalis Beach, Ocean Shores
Make plans now to come razor clam digging in Ocean Shores at Copalis Beach steps from The Polynesian Resort. The Washington Dept. of Fish & Wildlife has released its current calendar and regulations.
Copalis Beach in Ocean Shores is one of five harvest areas managed by the WDF&W. That makes Ocean Shores a hub for the sought-after razor clam. The Copalis Beach clamming area runs from the North Jetty to the mouth of the Copalis River, (with one small exception of a clam reserve just south of Ocean City). Razor clams exist primarily on the intertidal coastal beaches from a +3 foot level to a -2 foot tide level.
