OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife has approved a recreational razor clam dig at Copalis Beach over the Christmas holiday.

The dig has been scheduled for Thursday, Friday and Saturday after marine toxin tests showed the clams are safe to eat. All other Washington beaches remain closed to recreational razor clam digging.

Elevated levels of domoic acid had kept Washington’s beaches closed to clam digging, but Copalis Beach clams have been cleared by state public health officials after several rounds of testing.

This will be the first razor clam dig of the season.
