I like the domoic acid trend in the most recent tests! I'm still hopeful we can get a dig, perhaps in mid/late April?

I'd like to do the trifecta... Spring bear, crab and razor clams. That would work for me.

New acid level posted today from the 6th.  Copalis and Mocrocks are good but Long Beach and Twin Harbors are still high.  If WDFW sticks to their policy for all beaches being low, things look dim now.  Not looking good folks.  Crap.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

Since we have less than a month left in general for reasonable clam seasons I don't see it happening. Go figure, over a year without a clam dig.

With COVID cases rising, it doesn't sound promising that they would change course.

The good part is they will be plentiful when it does open!

We were camping out there the week before last and hit the beach near the good low tides every morning on Copalis.  Even without 10 thousand people traipsing around, you would have limited without moving 10 feet.

I'm hopeful there will be a dig on Copalis / Mocrocks before spring time is over...

Glad i have 4 or 5 limits in the freezer. Last winter 2019 and 20 and last fall some of the best digging ever as far as densities and few people. It's amazing to look on the WFDW website for shellfish openings .It can be shut down from Birch Bay to southern Hood Canal for water quality issues. However, Taylor Shellfish operates 365 a year in the same water. What a confidence builder for Fish and Wildlife! Our trifecta, Razor Clams, Oysters and Sea Perch. Very good day at the beach!

Outdoor Line said there may be an announcement this week - didn't even hint it would be good news.

I'm not holding my breath, but would be happy if we could get something.

Going to Long Beach May 1 for the clam festival. Not planning on climbing but just hanging out being tourist😉🥃🇺🇸
Hey! I'm not a complete idiot I have parts missing. Though sometimes I wonder.

If you want to make God laugh tell him your plans.

Might be time to literally tell the state to pound sand and just start clamming this is bs. Tribes clamming and selling us the same clams. Itís not about protecting the consumer from domicile acid.
