We are spending 2 nights in Newport at Nye Beach. Is there any good clamming nearby?
the best razor clamming tends to be on the north coast- north of Tillamook. But there may be a few near Newport-Agate Beach might be good. Make sure to get an ODFW clamming license... Im assuming this is sometime in the near future- clamming is useally closed during the summer months-at least in Clatsop county...
People do find razors around Newport and sometimes Waldport, but as Chinookgrrl said, most of them are farther north. I think the Newport area is open year round, but am not 100% sure.
Ha ha! Yes, Bell Buoy!
If you can't find them on the beach, check out the fresh fish selection at Local Ocean Seafoods on the Bayfront. Seems I saw some in the case when we stopped in a few weeks ago for lunch and bought crabcakes to take home.
Yes she did, thru. My post was for anybody interested in clamming, ergo my wording: "If anybody is interested, go to Funbeach.com for digging dates and all sorts of information about Long Beach."
We have a place in Newport and in all my years I have never seen a single person digging for razor clams in Newport. I did a little google search and found that 95% of razor clams in Oregon oare found between the Columbia River and Seaside. That means only 5% are found in the entire length of the Oregon Coast.
Sure, the OP is staying in Nye Beach but why try to clam in an area where there is such a slim chance of digging one up when they can take a nice drive up the beach and have a heck of a lot better chance of digging up their dinner.
