Mussels & Clams ??
« on: January 22, 2023, 12:09:24 PM »

Hi Folks,   :hello:
I am planning on spending some time this spring and summer down at Westport.
I  know where to go for razor clams but I was thinking of doing some other clamming.
I like mussels and I want to try some other clams besides razors. 

Does anyone know where to go for mussels and other clams such as cockles, butter, littlenecks around Westport.
I don't have a boat so its walk in for me.

Any help is appreciated.
JC   :hello:

Mussels on the jetty. But be careful, I know two people who were picking mussels there and got washed off by a rouge wave. Luckily some other people on the jetty helped them back on.

Head south past Tokeland. Lots of easy clamming and access for steamers on Willapa.

Lots of Mussels on the south jetty, some blue but mostly California mussels.
I have never seen the jetty opened by the DOH.
