Long Beach razor clam festival
 Long Beach Razor Clam Queens
Long Beach started an annual Razor Clamming festival in the 1940′s where they would cook Razor Clams in the “World’s Largest Frying Pan”. In 1948 the festival was discontinued due to a dwindling razor clam population. The  Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife,   ever since then, has limited the number of days per year you can clam. Today the  Long Beach Razor Clam Festival  is active, probably due to the limited schedule for legal clamming. Check the  Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife  Razor Clamming schedule to see which days are legal. Generally these dates are only available a few months in advance. The clamming is good all along the 28 miles of beach,

but the north end seems to have the most abundance and largest razor clams.

On the opposite side of the Peninsula is Oysterville, which creates the ability to limit out on razor clams and then drive ten minutes to limit out on Oysters the same day.

Information provided is a result of personal experience clamming at each bay location over a period of fifty-years, and local residences providing input and advice; as well as ongoing information from past Washington Department Fish and Wildlife surveys. Information will change as incoming seas have a tendency to shift and move sand bars. The hope of this information is for people new to clamming to have a successful first time experience, but razorclamming.com is not responsible for the accuracy of this data, and the outcome, or results of your personal efforts.
