The abundance of razor clams along the Oregon Coast varies greatly and dramatically due to ocean conditions, the erosion of beach sand, weather related die offs and disease, but because of the decline in the population of razor clams south of Tillamook Head we recommend digging razor clams on the beaches associated with Clatsop Spit or with the beaches associated with Meyers Beach in Southern Oregon.

The Clatsop Spit Beaches, "Seaside, Gearhart, Del Rey Beach, Sunset Beach, Columbia Beach and Clatsop Spit" are one of the most productive beach areas for digging razor clams in the Pacific Northwest. Each year tens of thousands clam digging enthusiast visit area beaches to dig razor clams. ODFW claims that ninety five percent of Oregon's razor clam digging occurs there, but I believe the percentage is much higher. This year's population assessment by ODFW estimates the number of razor clams on Clatsop Spit beaches to be approximately seven million. The Clatsop Spit beaches are the ideal place for those new to digging razor clam to learn how to dig razor clams.

It was thrilling to read the comment posted on facebook by clam digger, Steven Schwindt, "I got started digging clams a few months ago. I bought William's Oregon's Razor Clams and it is big help to me. The book goes with me every time we go clamming."
