Any reports from Long Beach? We are heading down there next weekend. Should be a good time.

Tough digging for clams this afternoon. I ended up with two. The wind was ripping and rain was coming down sideways. Was anybody else out there?

We went a few days ago, on Thursday. Was not an easy dig by any means. Had to pound the sand to get the majority of them to show. Smaller sized too. But we got our 30 at the end of it. Took about 45 mins.

Tried for some surf perch too. Had a few bites and caught a dink. Always worth trying when down for clamming!

It was good the past couple days. Today looked a bit too sporty for me to go.

We went again this last weekend. Great clamming both days. On Sunday we clammed at Roosevelt beach and crossed the creek at Iron Springs.  I just read today that a guy got his truck stuck in the creek and died.  I always look at it closely before crossing and sometimes turn around. If you choose to cross that creek be cautious.  I’ve seen a truck not make it and get swept away. Driver was lucky to get out that time.

In the creek, or the Copalis river?

I was going to say, the creek is usual pretty easy crossing!

Sad deal!

The first story I saw on this incident said that witnesses saw two people swimming trying to make it to the bank.  The story above doesn't mention anyone else as being in the vehicle.

"About 6:30 p.m. Monday, Dennis A. Faulk of Grandview was headed south on Copalis Beach in Grays Harbor County. Troopers say he drove his 2020 Chevrolet Traverse into a river access point and came to a stop when the SUV began to flood with water."

The location description seems odd, but I'm thinking he drove into the Copalis River off of a "fishing" access road vs doing a "low tide beach crossing" which I would not ever recommend on the Copalis - which is closed to vehicles anyway.  Hard to imagine getting swept up at Iron springs, plenty of "street" cars cross there.  It happened at 6:30 on Monday night which was not part of a clam dig.
