I’m sure glad that we hammered them when we could this year, even making the two+ hour drive. Looks like it will be quite some time before we get to again, Washington and Oregon. Let’s keep our fingers crossed this passes.

ALL FOUR Washington beaches finally trending down and hovering at or very close to the action level. Fingers crossed that the next two tests are BELOW 20 straight across the board! If that's the case, we could have the green light for the minus tide series at the end of the month.

Looking back at DA statistics for 2020 it doesn't make much sense to me. Numbers look good until 10/30 when they rocket up to 100 from 9.6. Since 10/30 they remain at 100 or 110 to 120 on 12/14. Has anyone seen numbers this high on Clatsop Beaches before? Looks like a "Clamdemic" to me.

Yes. Pretty sure 2015 was higher.

How does the water look? If it's not soupy the number could be improving.
Have you seen the parade of lows churning around out there?

According to the website the level was 20.0PPM at Long Beach on Dec 28. I believe they should be testing again this week. If the test shows lower than 20PPM are the clams deemed to be safe? I know they have to test within safety levels on 2 consecutive tests, so is 20 considered within the safety parameter or does it have to be below 20? It says the maximum threshold is 20PPM. To me, that would mean that they are safe at 20PPM or below but not at 21. If that is correct then one more test at 20PPM or below and we would be good to go.
