Meeting location: NAC, Cost: $65
The Pacific razor clam is one of the most sought-after shellfish in Washington. Better roads and more leisure time have brought increasing numbers of diggers to the ocean beaches. It is not unusual to have as many as a thousand people per mile during a nice weekend day. Recreational digging for razor clams can be enjoyed by children and senior citizens alike. You only need a clam shovel or specialized tube, a container to put your clams in, and most importantly, your clam license. During the fall and winter when low tides occur at night, thousands of clam diggers brave the elements to dig by lantern or flashlight. Because there is a great deal of interest in digging at all times of the year, seasons are set to allow digging during daylight spring tides when there is better weather and during the fall/winter when diggers have to deal with the elements, but not as many clam diggers.
