State shellfish managers have announced that the first of two razor-clam digs scheduled in April will proceed as planned, after marine toxin tests confirmed the clams are safe to eat. Two ocean beaches – Long Beach and Twin Harbors – will be open for clam digging on morning low tides April 7-9. No digging will be allowed after noon. This will also be the first dig in which the 2011-2012 licenses will be needed for diggers 15 years and older, since the 2010-2011 licenses expired at the end of March.
Morning low tides for digging days approved in April are:
· April 7 (Thursday), 9:37 a.m. (0.1 feet); Long Beach, Twin Harbors
· April 8 (Friday), 10:19 a.m. (0.2 feet); Long Beach, Twin Harbors
· April 9 (Saturday), 11:07 a.m. (0.4 feet); Long Beach, Twin Harbors
