Razor Clamming Dates Announced

December 21st, 2016 at 1:10pm

Razor clam fans, great news as new tentative clam dig dates have been announced for North Coast beaches. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife just released 19 proposed dig dates in January and February. The 2017 dates are in addition to a proposed dig this week, on December 30th and 31st, at Copalis and Mocrocks.

Make plans to come dig and stay with us at Oyhut Bay Resort. We’re offering a 25% discount on two or more nights around any dig dates – including the upcoming holiday weekend! Our cottages are your perfect home base for diggers. Each cottage has its own outdoor hot/cold water faucet, plus large, fully equipped kitchens so you can prep for frying, clam chowder or your favorite recipe. (Want to try something new? Check out these recipes for fried clams!) Our vacation rental homes fit from 1 to 8 friends and family members, enough room for the whole digging crew.

If you have time off this week and you haven’t made plans, this is the perfect opportunity to spend a relaxing, fun New Year’s weekend at the beach. Check rates and availability online, then call 360.553.1818 to book your stay – and don’t forget to ask for your 25% off Clam Diggers Special!
