RAZOR CLAMMNG INFORMATION
SEASON UPDATE: The tentatively planned late march razor clam opening at Copalis, Mocrocks will proceed. Results from the most recent round of marine toxin testing for these two beaches are below the action level. However, the tentative Twin Harbors dates must be cancelled because one sample area tested above 20 ppm. See the details below.
March 24, Friday, 5:01 p.m.; 0.5 feet; Mocrocks
March 25, Saturday, 5:44 p.m.; 0.2 feet; Copalis
March 26, Sunday, 6:24 p.m.; 0.0 feet; Mocrocks
PLEASE NOTE: We will again be alternating open days between Copalis and Mocrocks. This schedule will allow diggers visiting this area of our coast to have a total of 3 days of digging. However, diggers will need to be very careful that each day they are on the correct beach. Please know that had we run these openings consecutively, there would only have been a total of 2 days of digging.
The specific toxin levels for razor clams collected from all beaches are listed below. As was noted above, the most recent set of Twin Harbors marine toxin results have one (of three) areas testing above the action level. Two new sets of razor clam samples, at least one week apart will need to be collected from Twin Harbors with all testing below the action level - before we can re-open this beach.
However, you will also see below that in the last round of results collected at Long Beach, all four areas sampled on this beach tested in single digits. Long Beach razor clam samples will be collected again on 3/26 and IF all areas test below 20 ppm – it will be the second good set of toxin samples and we will open Long Beach as soon as we can.
