Two days added to Copalis (Ocean Shores) Razor Clam Digging Season
State shellfish managers just announced two additional days of razor clam digging, for Monday and Tuesday, April 25-26.
Lucky for guests of The Polynesian Resort, those dates fall during our 50% off room rate promotion. Clam diggers are encouraged to make reservations early.
Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager, said the department added the additional days of digging at Copalis, which were not originally included in the list of tentative digs previously announced by the agency. He said, the dig was added after catch estimates indicated that there are still clams available for harvest to allow for two weekday openings at the beach.
Ayres recommends that diggers arrive at the beaches an hour or two before low tide for best results. However, digging is not allowed on any beach after noon.
- April 25, Monday, 9:18 a.m.; -0.2 feet; Copalis
- April 26, Tuesday, 9:56 a.m.; -0.1 feet; Copalis
All diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable 2016-17 fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach. Licenses, ranging from a three-day razor clam license to an annual combination fishing license, are available on WDFW’s website at https://fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov and from license vendors around the state.
It’s another great reason to visit The Polynesian Resort in Ocean Shores!
