Early November Razor Clam Digs

All of you eager diggers will be happy to read that we’ve got a full week of Razor Clam opportunity on the Washington Coast coming up! Digging will be wide open during the first week of November. With evening clam tides, break out the headlights and lanterns for easy limits. October 2013 Razor Clam digs were exceptionally good with easy limits for nearly every single person who participated, regardless of experience.

Please also check out the Official WDFW News Release for details and the WDFW Razor Clam Page for additional information and regulations.

Digging Razor Clams at night requires a little more preparation, and the November dates will be a little more chilly, gear up and dress warm! Good luck out there everyone!
