Sad the things we need to watch out for when enjoying the things we purchase. Personally never worried. Group dig until every limit is filled.

Went out today for the first time. Holy ... was it packed! I figured it would be busy but that was on another level.I imagine it was because this was the only beach open.  We got a few but not as much as Iíd hoped. We treated it as a learning experience. Gotta get there earlier than we did. Canít wait for the next dig! We took my two kids and they had a blast getting dirty lol.

That was unreal this morning.  Never seen that many people in all the years clamming.  We hit the northern part at 8:30 and decided to wait to this bar started to show about 9:45.  Waded out there in satchel deep water and limited in 9 minutes.  I have never seen that density of clam shows, ever.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

Crazy crowds. Left with limits at 9 and the line went from Roosevelt past the green lantern pub.

Traffic was insane. I only live an hour from Moclips, but it took 2.5 today. We didnít even hit the beach before the tide turned. We were able to get 4 limits, but had to work for them. Friday was as good as I remember in a long while

It would be fun sometime to do a meet up, so those of us who grew up digging could help out fellow huntwa members

We left Pacific Beach at 10:30 or so and the traffic coming west towards town on Ocean Beach Rd was backed up 4 miles I think.

Sure was nice to get back out, some great conditions and nice clams. But yes, a single open beach on the Sunday of Memorial Day makes for some crazy crowds in places!  Still had a great time.

I was there on Friday. I drove up to the northern most access. I had a decent limit by 7:30 and helped locate some clams for a nice lady. I normally like to take some time and try to dig the biggest clams. You can be fooled though. I just had a feeling the traffic was going to turn into a zoo. The southern access at Pacific Beach was the choke point. Traffic was dead stopped and the line was 2 miles long before 8 am. Nobody could get by to get to the other 2 beach approaches!
