Don't even think about visiting Long Beach without going clamming. It's one of the favorite local pastimes, and it's a one-of-a-kind way to spend a few hours on the beach. Razor clam digs are heavily regulated through the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife, and you can check their website for approved dates and times for clamming. The best clamming occurs one to two hours before low tide. State law dictates that those who are 15 years old and older must have an applicable fishing license, you're required to keep the first 15 clams you dig up, and you have to keep your clams in a separate container from your companion's. On a less bureaucratic note, the WDFW website has some great tips on digging and cleaning your clams as well as some great razor clam recipes. Remember to look for the little circles in the sand to indicate a clam and don't be afraid to lunge your hand in after the little guys, sometimes the first pull doesn't get them.
