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 proposed dig dates for Fall and Winter.

Make plans to come dig and stay with us at Oyhut Bay Resort. We’re offering a 10% discount on two or more nights around any dig dates. 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. And you can now get your license onsite at the Oyhut Bay Fresh Market.

This is the perfect opportunity to spend a relaxing weekend at the beach. Fall weather is spectacular, beaches are less crowded and campfires may be permitted again for Fall S’mores roasting. Check rates and availability online, then call to book your stay – and don’t forget to ask for your 10% off Clam Diggers Special!
