The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) have announced the reopening of razor clamming after acid levels dropped below the alert level.

Harvesting is now open from the south jetty of the Umpqua River, south of Reedsport, to the south jetty of Coos Bay.

The harvesting of razor clams remains closed from Cascade Head, north of Lincoln City, to the south jetty of the Umpqua River and from the south jetty of Coos Bay to the California border. This includes all beaches and bays.

Clamming remains open from the Columbia River to Cascade Head.

ODA will continue to test for shellfish toxins every other week, as tides permit. Reopening of an area requires two consecutive tests in the safe range.
