          Crabbing season recently closed. Razor clam digging reopened in Clatsop County on October 1. The "season" varies from year to year and is mainly dependent on bacteria levels in the ocean.

            Oregon razor clam harvest is closed July 15 through September 30 to protect juvenile clams, and other times when necessary due to toxins.

          2. Check w/Higgins Restaurant.

            1. We had some (very good, BTW) at Ocean City Chinese restaurant at 3016 SE 82nd, near Fubon Market.

              1. OM Seafood carries them live in their tanks for sell to the public, and their restaurant next door also has dishes with razor clams in them.

                1. We dig razor clams when crave. The season is open now. Oregon's toll free shellfish hotline is: 1-800-448-2474, always call prior to harvest. Must be aware of the season and tides when dig. Clams live on beautiful beaches. Use a long handled clam shovel or clam gun. Razor clams are not as numerous as recall in the past, but still there. Reminds me of good times with family and friends both digging and consuming. Here is the website with more information:
