It's been a few years since I was up to Ninilchick or Clam Gulch digging razor clams. This year I avoided Ninilchick because of the reports of all the tiny clams. I dug at Clam beach. I headed south from the parking lot. I kept the first 20 clams I dug and they ranged from about 2" to 3.5". At that point I decided not to kill any more as it seemed a waste to me.
Other clammers I talked to were getting clams about the same size.
If this is typical, then I think the F&G should close the beaches down for a few years to let the clams get to a respectable size. Or is there something about the life cycle of clams I don't know?
Just curious if anybody else sees it the way I do. Sorry for being so negative but I was really dissapointed.
