Sport clam, oyster season delayed at South Indian Island County Park

Action: The sport clam and oyster fishing season will be delayed until July 1.

Effective date: Open July 1 until further notice.

Species affected: All clams and oysters.

Location: South Indian Island County Park. This beach is located in Jefferson Co., near Port Townsend.

Reason for action: Surveys indicate that the clam population on this beach has decreased, requiring a season with reduced effort in 2014. The delayed opening does this, and also provides a more continuous recreational opportunity at public beaches in the Admiralty Inlet area (including Oak Bay County Park, Fort Flagler State Park, and Port Townsend Ship Canal).
