ASTORIA, Ore. (AP) - A portion of the Oregon Coast is open for razor clamming.

The Daily Astorian reports (https://is.gd/kXELEJ ) beaches from Tillamook Head to Cascade Head have been open to diggers since Friday.

Digging had been closed along the entire Oregon Coast because high levels of a marine toxin were found in clam meat. But three rounds of testing have shown those levels dropping below the threshold established by the Oregon Department of Agriculture.

Harvest remains closed from Cascade Head south to the California state line and from Tillamook Head north to the Columbia River. The latter area closes annually from July 15 through Sept. 30 for conservation reasons, regardless of whether biotoxins are present.
