Razor clamming now open from Cascade Head to Yachats River.

May 18, 2018

SALEM -- The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) announce the reopening of razor clamming from Cascade Head to the mouth of the Yachats River as domoic acid levels have dropped below the alert level.

The opening means razor clamming is now open from the Columbia River to the mouth of the Yachats River and open from the south jetty of the Umpqua River to Cape Arago.

The harvesting of razor clams remains closed from Yachats River to the north jetty of the Umpqua River and closed from Cape Arago to the California border. This includes all beaches and all bays.

Razor clams from Siuslaw Beaches were collected May 18, 2018 with results expected mid-week the following week. A result below the alert level will allow for the opening of razor clams from the Columbia River to Cape Arago.

Mussels, bay clams and crab are open for recreational harvesting along the entire Oregon Coast. Contact ODFW for recreational licensing requirements, permits and rules.

For more information please call ODA’s shellfish safety information hotline at (800) 448-2474 or visit the ODA shellfish closures web page at http://www.oregon.gov/oda/programs/foodsafety/shellfish/pages/shellfishclosures.aspx
