Next Round of WA Razor Clam Digs Approved for This Sunday
Officials with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife have given the go-ahead for the next round of razor clam digs on the Washington coast starting this Sunday! They have determined that razor clams from all open beaches will be safe to eat. Over 1 million clams were taken in September (with over 55,000 diggers participating).
All open beaches have increased limits through the end of the year to 20 clams instead of 15. All clamdiggers age 15 or older must be licensed. For open beach information, license information, and tide information click HERE.
If you've never been clamming, it can be a fun (and sometimes frustrating) day. Boots. You'll need some good waterproof pull-on rubber boots. And a clam-gun. Not a pew-pew-pew gun. As you'll see in the video below, the stainless steel clam-gun works a bit easier than the PVC style. So what do you do with your clams? Chowder or fried clam strips? I love both!
How about some fried clam strips and a cold beer?
