Wayne Kruse's Pick of the Week: Razor Clams

Weather and surf conditions might be iffy, but a combination of great minus tides and a holiday weekend offer a top opportunity for limits of razor clams on the coastal beaches Friday and Saturday. Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis and Mocrocks will all be open to digging Friday evening (low is a minus 1.9-foot tide at 6:27 p.m.), and all but Copalis on Saturday (low is a minus 1.8 at 7:14 p.m.). Kalaloch will not open either day.
State Fish and Wildlife clam manager Dan Ayres in Montesano said Long Beach is the place to go for larger clams, with Mocrocks in second place.
As of Wednesday, the coastal wind and surf forecast for this weekend wasn't great -- swells of 15 to 21 feet and perhaps winds to 40 knots by late Saturday. As a rule of thumb, Ayres said, swells over 15 feet generally make for difficult digging.
Current coastal wind and surf forecasts are available through the National Weather Service site in Seattle, Ayres said. Go to
