Subject: Razor Clam Update: No Digging Until Fall 2020

You are receiving this message because you have expressed interest in Washington State's recreational razor clam fishery. If you do not wish to receive future messages, please reply by return e-mail with the word “delete” in the subject heading.

There will be no additional razor clam harvest openings until sometime in the fall of 2020. Conflicting information in local media reports and on various social media platforms has created some level of confusion.

The last few days, WDFW has been working with both Grays Harbor County and Pacific County regarding the possibility of allowing some razor clam harvest before the season ends on May 31. However, yesterday the Governor's Office informed WDFW that because large razor clam crowds constitute a gathering under the Stay Home—Stay Healthy order. This order has been extended to May 31st, so razor clam digs and similar large gatherings are not allowed at this time.
WDFW is now focusing on a what we expect will be a great 2020-21 season and will start the field work for our summer-long razor clam population assessments very soon.

After seeing the amount of traffic coming in to Aberdeen 5/22/2020, Grays Harbor just got to Stage 2, I can't imagine what it would have been like with clam digging allowed. Guess the Governor gets a thanks from most people that live here.......see you clam diggers in October - December.

Be safe !!!!
