Oregon isn't that great for a lot of things but we are having a epic razor clamming year. Both from the amount of clams out there and also the size has just been fantastic. I've been going every 2 weeks or so when we have a good tide and each trip has been easy limits of jumbo clams. Just got done cleaning todays limit - looking forward to dinner tonight grin

Anybody else hit the beach recently??

You’re killing me. No razors in my part of Oregon.

Gonna try digging gapers when I moor my boat in Newport.

I’m a fried clam loving SOB.

I hope you’re saving the stomach for crab bait.

I’ve never seen them.

Been looking for 7 years.

They're there. I could walk there from our house in South Beach.

I've been told you can find them on Agate Beach but you need a pretty good minus tide to do well. Even then I don't think its as good as up around Seaside/Gearhart/Sunset Beach area.

Oregonmuley: Good for you on the tasty "catch"!
Our family used to hit the beaches in SW Washington (and sometimes in Oregon) for Razor Clams - your photos bring back great memories - thanks for sharing.
Our interests family wise switched to Butter Clams as they were closer to home and more often more accessible.
About the only things I miss about living in the Pacific Northwest is Steelhead fishing and fresh seafood (including the aforementioned Razor Clams and Butter Clams).
Thanks again for sharing - enjoy.

After the covid closure we had some really good digging on the Washington beaches. The limit was even raised from 15 clams to 20 per person.
Our spring digs are over for the year so no more digging until the night tides this fall.

I'll be back at it next week either Tuesday or Wednesday - we will have some of the best minus tides of the year so looking forward to another fun dig. Will be getting a hold of you then Pharm to figure out how to get you some clams!!

Another beautiful day on the beach - great clamming today I don't think I've ever seen so many shows in the sand even up in the dry stuff. Lots of people but I think everyone was having a great time. Not the best picture but all nice sized clams and will be fine eating for sure wink

I’m a big fan of razor clams. Never understood the draw of geoducks though.
