The dig starts Dec. 1 at Copalis. Digging will also be allowed Dec. 2 and 4 at Long Beach, Twin Harbors and Mocrocks and Dec. 3 at Long Beach Twin Harbors and Copalis.
Digging is allowed after noon with low tides at 4:42 p.m. on Dec. 1, 5:29 p.m. on Dec. 2, 6:15 p.m. on Dec. 3 and 7:02 p.m. on Dec. 4. State officials urge diggers to carry a lantern. The best digging usually occurs an hour or two before low tide.
