Clam Tides

Rating - Fair   

Sunday, Dec 15 2019
RAZOR CLAMAs of Dec. 13, the recreational harvest of razor clams is CLOSED along the entire Oregon coast. This includes all beaches and all bays.The best low tides have switched to the evenings so harvesters should plan accordingly. Clammers should expect a high abundance of razor clams 3 inches or less. Targeting the largest show, greater than a nickel in diameter, will greatly increase the odds of harvesting a larger clam. Razor clam season starts to slow down at beaches south of Clatsop as the end of good daytime negative low tides approaches.Fall and winter harvesting of razor clams can be a challenging endeavor. Unlike the spring and summer, low tides are in the evenings and at night when visibility is poor or nonexistent. Typical to the Oregon coast, the fall and winter brings large storm events, which keep the razor clams from showing as readily and can also be a safety risk with surging water and debris on the beach. Make sure to monitor swell and surf advisories as well as predicted wind prior to harvesting. Combined seas greater than 10 feet and winds greater than 20mph will make harvesting difficult for all, including the most experienced harvester.
