The next razor clam dig opens Wednesday, and will include the first day-time low tides of the season.

Dan Ayres, coastal shellfish manager for the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, said the switch from evening to morning digs reflects the moon’s seasonal effect on the tides. Ayres also noted that diggers will have to purchase a 2014 license to participate in digs after March 31.

Digging is best an hour or two before low tide. Here are the dates and times for the low tide:

Wednesday: 3:52 p.m.; 0.3 feet; Twin Harbors.

Thursday: 4:48 p.m.; 0.1 feet; Twin Harbors.

Friday: 5:38 p.m.; 0.0 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks.

Saturday: 6:23 p.m.; 0.0 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks.

Sunday: 6:53 a.m.; -0.1 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach, Mocrocks.

March 31: 7:39 a.m.; -0.5 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach.

April 1: 8:22 a.m.; -0.7 feet; Twin Harbors, Long Beach.
