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:
Year round with rings?   December 1st through September 15th with pots? :dunno:

"WDFW is continuing to sample razor clams on a regular basis and will announce razor clam harvest dates when domoic acid levels drop on all beaches and the Washington Department of Health determines the clams are safe to eat."

Looks like they're waiting for all the beaches to be below the "death to clammers" levels to open anything.

Such a bunch of crap.

WDFW sells fishing and clamming licenses prior to cancelling or severely limiting opportunities.
It's BS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They should prorate our loss of opportunity cost based on what they originally sold us on day one.

"Opportunity"= buying a license

Anything else is purely gratuitous icing on the cake.

New D. acid levels posted today.  All beaches have skyrocketed.  Shocking.  It looks like multiple readings on a couple beaches that vary wildly. I'm guessing late Feb. at the earliest now.

Mark Yuasa posted earlier today that WDFW made a deal with the coast local governments that they wouldn't open razors unless every beach was safe to ensure people didn't all go to one place.  I'll refrain from commenting on the logic there.

The takeaway is that if a single beach is at 20 or above, no bueno.

He also mentioned it takes two tests spaced 10 days apart below 20 ppm for the health department to sign off.  I wasn't aware of the exact procedure.

On a good note, it sounds like the water is clean, we are just waiting for the clams to detox, which sounds like sometimes takes a while.

One thing that has concerned me is that the entire coast of Oregon was shut down Jan. 7th and the ODW recommended not eating any razors dug after Nov. 16th.  Also, it looks like BC is in the same situation (if I deciphered their websites correctly).  Hoping late February now.

Keep in mind there is NO CURE once you eat toxic clams. Read up on how the blooms work and the results if you eat them. Really not good. They need to be careful.
I have also polled people that express doubt about COVID, but have yet to find ONE that was volunteering at a hospital to help out. Because, you know, it is all fake news...
They will open, and the digging will produce a wonderful bounty. Not the first bloom and won’t be the last. Milder water temps are one of the big issues.

I just got over Covid and donated my blood for anti bodies and I have been helping in nursing homes and hospitals.  It was just a bad head cold for me. Continue the hysteria  :chuckle:

Glad you came out Ok!
Have a guy at work that was not careful and infected all of his family at a birthday party. Two died (older) and one was on a ventilator as of this writing. So he has that memory to deal with. Not everybody gets hit the same. True with all diseases.
Congratulations on being the first person I have heard of helping in the hospitals! I just did a 'double platelet' donation on the new 'mini' machine!

Another update of the razor clam toxins on the WDFW website as of Feb 8th:

Twin Harbors jumped from 30 to 49 ppm
Long Beach went from 22 to 56 ppm
Copalis had 3 readings of 50, 28 and 23ppm compared to 27,32 and 49ppm on Jan 28th
Mocrocks was 19, 20 and 34

There should be another update soon, but...It's not looking good for a razor clam season this spring. Wish it was better news.

Yeah, I've pretty much written it off but hope I'm wrong.

Well I hate to speculate...

But I've been digging razors for 30 years in this state and don't ever remember a period this long with high toxin's.. they've been testing since when, late 80s early 90s if I recall...

I kinda wish they would just come out and say we don't want thousands of people flooding our coastal towns.
