January 3, 2014

Sport clam and oyster season opens at Fort Flagler State Park

Action: Opens the sport clam and oyster season.

Effective date: Immediately through April 15, and May 15 through Dec. 31, 2014.

Species affected: All clams and oysters.

Location: Fort Flagler State Park. This beach is located in Jefferson County near Port Townsend.

Reason for action: Surveys indicate that the clam population on this beach can support a longer season in 2014. The split season avoids the one-month seaweed season at Fort Flagler; having a concurrent clam and seaweed season would complicate enforcement and monitoring of the clam fishery.

Information contact: Alex Bradbury, WDFW Port Townsend Field Office, (360) 302-3030, ext. 302.

Fishers must have a current Washington fishing license, appropriate to the fishery. Check the WDFW "Fishing in Washington" rules pamphlet for details on fishing seasons and regulations. Fishing rules are subject to change. Check the WDFW Fishing hotline for the latest rule information at (360) 902-2500, press 2 for recreational rules. For the Shellfish Rule Change hotline call (360)796-3215 or toll free 1-866-880-5431.
