Went out tonight around 10:30 and dug a limit in about 20 minutes. There were people north and south of the Sunset Beach access. My wife and son had both gotten limits mid morning also which allowed me to have fresh fried razor's for dinner. It's been several months since we were able to dig so they tasted extra good! Not alot of pressure tonight. I'm sure that will change though. It was a very calm and warm evening on the beach.

Doryboy,Baytroller,


I'm sorta new to the razor scene, mostly dig gapers and butters. Do you mean that you dug the +2.5 low tide? That doesn't seem very low for a low tide but I guess it is adequate for razors?

My wife and son dug the tide your referring too and both got their limits. I dug the night tide which was a lower tide and got mine. The current morning tides would not normally be considered a good tide to dig but if you have an ocean thats laid down pretty good you can dig more often than you would think. It helps when there are clams around also! Good luck if you go.

Clatsop Beaches are the only ones open in Oregon right now. ODFW does not have as intense of a management program as WDFW. The season is wide open until July 14th unless a toxin outbreak occurs.

STRIKE ZONE------THE BEST TIME IS LOW TIDE. THE BIGGER THE MINUS THE BETTER. JUST MORE OF THEM TO DIG. ALSO LOOK FOR THE BIGGER AIR HOLES, THEY TEND TO CORRULATE TO BIGGER CLAMS. I WOULD HEAD DOWN THERE BUT HAVE TO LOAD UP FOR DEER HUNTING. GOOD LUCK!!

Got down on the beach late this afternoon (1:00 pm) tide was already starting to come in. We got our clams but had to work for them, 45min. to one hr. I heard from some of my friends that they didn't have any trouble getting them, both today at 11:00 am and last night. :shrug: We were south of sunset.................Bobber Down

Netarts bay has excellent clamming but I don't think they get razors there. Fort Stevens is about a 30-45 minute drive north and would be a much better choice for razors.

Len and I went clamming up by Hammond and had our limits in 30 minutes. :dance:

Got a late start so the tide had already turned but they were still showing. Wasn't a low tide either. Had them for dinner last night and they were yummy!! :grin: :laugh: :grin:

Steve, remind me when we get together lobbing some bobbers here soon (did I just invite myself :blush: ), I'll bring along a vac. package of razors for you to take home. Did you want them cleaned (JK)?
I haven't got any more eggs recently, so I'm fine on the cure.
The size of the clams that I got were 3 3/4" to 4" for those that asked.................Bobber Down
