Razor clam dig starts Friday on 2 ocean beaches OLYMPIA State fishery managers have given the OK for the second razor clam dig this month, this one scheduled to begin Jan. 13 at two ocean beaches. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) approved the three-day opening at Copalis and Mocrocks after marine toxin tests confirmed the clams on those beaches are safe to eat. The best digging typically occurs one to two hours before low tide, said Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager. Digging is not allowed on any beach before noon. The long weekend should provide an excellent opportunity for diggers to visit the coast for clamming, Ayres said. However, he noted the razor clam opening does not include the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday on Monday. The upcoming dig is approved on the following beaches, dates and evening low tides: Jan. 13, Friday, 7:17 p.m.; -1.4 feet; Copalis, Mocrocks Jan. 14, Saturday, 7:59 p.m.; -1.0 feet; Copalis, Mocrocks Jan. 15, Sunday, 8:40 p.m.; -0.4 feet; Copalis, Mocrocks Under state law, diggers at open beaches can take 15 razor clams per day and are required to keep the first 15 they dig. Each digger's clams must be kept in a separate container. 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. Both Long Beach and Twin Harbors are closed to razor clam digging due to elevated levels of domoic acid. A natural toxin produced by certain types of algae, domoic acid can be harmful or even fatal if consumed in sufficient quantities. WDFW will continue to monitor toxin levels at all ocean beaches.

Steelhead license plate available for purchase OLYMPIA Steelhead enthusiasts can now show support for their favorite species by purchasing a vehicle license plate with an image of Washington's iconic state fish. The steelhead specialty plate went on sale today and revenue generated from plate sales will be used by the Washington Department Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) to help support activities critical to conserving populations of native steelhead. More than 4,000 people expressed interest in buying a steelhead license plate last year when WDFW collected the signatures required to seek legislative approval to offer a new specialty plate. The 2016 Legislature gave the OK to proceed with steelhead license plate sales. "We can't wait to see steelhead license plates on vehicles across this state," said Kelly Cunningham, deputy assistant director of WDFW's Fish Program. "This is a great way to help fund efforts to conserve steelhead in Washington." In much of Washington, wild steelhead are listed for protection under the federal Endangered Species Act. WDFW is currently taking several actions to restore those populations to sustainable levels, including measures that guide fisheries management, hatchery operations, monitoring and habitat-restoration programs. The initial price of special wildlife-themed background plates ranges from $54 to $72 depending on the vehicle, in addition to the regular license fees.

Razor clam dig at Kalaloch approved for Jan. 8-9 OLYMPIA Clam diggers have a green light to proceed with a razor clam dig Jan. 8 and 9 at Kalaloch beach. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) approved the dig on evening tides after marine toxin tests showed the clams at Kalaloch are safe to eat. Digging is not allowed on any open beach before noon. Dan Ayres, coastal shellfish manager for WDFW, noted this is the first razor clam opening at Kalaloch since 2012. Located inside Olympic National Park, the beach hasn't been open the last few years for razor clam digging due a low abundance of clams. "Diggers can expect to see smaller clams at Kalaloch as compared to other beaches, but we expect most folks will be pleased to have a chance to dig there," Ayres said. "We're looking forward to announcing additional digs at Kalaloch in the coming months." The upcoming dig at Kalaloch is approved on the following dates and low tides: Jan. 8, 2017, Sunday, 3:11 p.m.; 0.4 feet; Kalaloch Jan. 9, Monday, 4:08 p.m.; -0.4 feet; Kalaloch Olympic National Park Superintendent Sarah Creachbaum noted that diggers should be prepared for Kalaloch's remote location. "Kalaloch is considerably more isolated than the other clamming beaches, and visitors should be prepared for primitive conditions," she said. "This year's digs are scheduled for daylight hours, but people should still be prepared with flashlights or lanterns for any evening or twilight walks." Under state law, diggers at open beaches can take 15 razor clams per day and are required to keep the first 15 they dig. Each digger's clams must be kept in a separate container.
