Officials with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife have given the go-ahead for the next round of razor clam digs on the Washington coast starting this Sunday! They have determined that razor clams from all open beaches will be safe to eat. Over 1 million clams were taken in September (with over 55,000 diggers participating).

All open beaches have increased limits through the end of the year to 20 clams instead of 15. All clamdiggers age 15 or older must be licensed. For open beach information, license information, and tide information click HERE.

If you've never been clamming, it can be a fun (and sometimes frustrating) day. Boots. You'll need some good waterproof pull-on rubber boots. And a clam-gun. Not a pew-pew-pew gun. As you'll see in the video below, the stainless steel clam-gun works a bit easier than the PVC style. So what do you do with your clams? Chowder or fried clam strips? I love both!

How about some fried clam strips and a cold beer?

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
