What are the chances of seeing some digs in Jan and Feb?

I have a suspicion we won't get any digs until maybe next fall.

There was some good news on the last testing on the 28th.  Long Beach and Mocrocks are at or below the line and Copalis and Twin Harbors are just above.  I would say late January would be the first digs, but that's just a hope.  There are some decent tides around next weekend but I fear it's too late for those now.  I'm not holding my breath for any digs anytime soon though.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

I always thought the big storms on the coast, like the one we are having today really helped out, I almost believe they are skewing the numbers so they won't have a big group of people gathering and possibly spreading covid.

https://www.newsbreak.com/washington/quinault/news/2137255634158/quinault-tribe-recalling-nearly-29-tons-of-dungeness-crab


Hell of a coincidence. This state is owned by the tribes.

 They caught 29 tons of dungees in 6 days, and we get to go crabbing how often? Are they farming them? :dunno:
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

I would say near zero chance of a dig this winter.  We have the toxin hurdle and the COVID hurdle.  Digs on safe beaches were cancelled with far less COVID than we have now, so I don't see Olympia giving the green light.  Hope I'm wrong though, we are down to one package of chowder in the freezer and I have to wait for the family to leave the house for a little while so I don't have to share.

Yeah was really hoping to get out there are put some clams in the freezer this winter.  I heard something on KIRO radio about additional acid testing being performed this week?

There's a few others that wondered if something like that is going on.  For fish too...say they are under on counts to close down for rona and save face.

Seems like the toxins mysteriously disappear when it gets to the Oregon coast too

Oregon is farther from the Seattle sewage system, but closer to the Willamette, so I'm at a loss.
