A razor clam dig continues Sunday through Wednesday at some coastal beaches.

The best digging typically occurs one to two hours before low tide, but digging is not allowed at any beach before noon.

Here are the dates, low tide times and locations for this dig:

Sunday: 5:26 p.m.; -0.3 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks.

Monday: 6:03 p.m.; -0.4 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks.

Tuesday: 6:38 p.m.; -0.4 feet; Twin Harbors.

Wednesday: 7:12 p.m.; -0.3 feet; Twin Harbors.

State officials recommend diggers bring a lantern for evening digs.

Under state law, diggers can take 15 razor clams per day and are required to keep the first 15 they dig. Each digger’s clams must be kept in a separate container.

All diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable 2013-14 fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach. Licenses, ranging from a three-day razor clam license to an annual combination fishing license, are available on the department’s website at and from license vendors around the state.
