Fish Report for 2-29-2020
Recreational razor clamming open from the Columbia River to the Siuslaw River
by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) announce the opening of razor clam harvesting on the central Oregon coast.
Recreational and commercial razor clam harvesting is now open from the Columbia River to the north jetty of the Siuslaw River (in Florence). Recent samples taken from the area indicate the marine biotoxin domoic acid has dropped below the closure limit.;
Recreational and commercial razor clamming remains closed from the south jetty of the Siuslaw River (in Florence) to the California border for elevated levels of domoic acid toxin.
Bay clams, crab and mussel harvesting are open along the entire Oregon coastline. See MyODFW.com for more information on crabbing and clamming in Oregon https://myodfw.com/crabbing-clamming
