    WDFW schedules tentative razor clam digs through December

    OLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has announced a tentative schedule for the fall razor clam season set to begin in early October.   Final approval of all scheduled openings will depend on results of marine toxin tests (https://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish/razorclams/domoic_levels.html), which are usually conducted about a week before a dig is scheduled to begin.  "We're releasing a tentative schedule to give people plenty of time to make plans to go digging this fall," said Dan Ayres, coastal shellfish manager for WDFW.

    State shellfish managers are also seeking public input on management options, including scheduling for spring digs. Comments on the spring digs can be sent via email to razorclams@dfw.wa.gov.

    A summary of last season and an overview of the recently completed razor clam stock assessment is available via WDFW's 2018-19 Razor Clam Management Plan at https://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish/razorclams/seasons_set.html.

    Based on beach surveys conducted this summer, WDFW estimates the total razor clam population on most Washington's beaches has increased significantly from last season, which means more days of digging this season. The exception is Long Beach, an area that is recovering after a decline in clam survival due to low salinity in winter 2017.

    "The good news is that future digging opportunities look really great, with some opportunity even at Long Beach," Ayres said. "This is shaping up to be a great season for digging on the coast."

    Thank you to the Port of the Peninsula and Jay Personius.

    The light is a little low in the pic of our clock, but each of the four faces have Ocean Park above them in gold lettering with our founding year below.

    Expected here by the end of March, the Port have tentative plans to install on NW corner at Bay and Vernon in Bay Ave pedestrian upgrades currently in planning (another segment of the Beach to Bay Trail).

    Some Background:
    This clock was purchased with Surface Transportation Grant Funding for the Beach to Bay Trail.  The bottom of the four faces stand at 11 feet. The face is two feet in diameter. It is lighted.  It was manufactured in Cincinnati, Ohio by the oldest family owned business in the state (175 years old). There was a delay due to the flooding of their factory this winter, so it is still in Ohio, but traveling here soon. Looks like:  

    It has programmable musical chimes. The Port will maintain and service.
