Clamming Season Begins Today • Beach Blog 10/6

Clamming season on the WA Coast runs fall through spring. Check approved dates, and look for ‘Mocrocks’ on the map, the clamfield at Seabrook. Mockrocks extends from the Copalis River to the southern boundary of the Quinault Reservation near the Moclips River, including Iron Springs, Roosevelt Beach, Seabrook, Pacific Beach and Moclips. The first approved clam dig of 2017 is October 6 and October 7. The Dates are determined by testing toxin levels and health of the clam beds.

Clamming Season on the WA Coast

Get your clamming equipment rentals and clamming license at the Front Street Market and Buck’s Bikes in Seabrook. Not into clamming? It is also a great photo opp!

Clamming is a fishing sport governed by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. Dan Ayres, WDFW coastal shellfish manager recommends that diggers hit the beach about an hour or two before low tide for the best results. Get your tide table at the Seabrook Cottage Rentals office.

Clamming Season Regulations

All diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable 2017-18 fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach. Licenses, ranging from a three-day razor clam license to an annual combination fishing license, are available on WDFW’s website at https://fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov and from license vendors around the state.
