WDFW Fishing Rule Change
Action: The sport clam season will be extended on this public beach based on results from population, harvest and effort assessments.
Effective dates: Immediately through April 30, 2018.
Species affected: All clams.
Location: Point Whitney Tidelands, located in Jefferson County on the west side of Hood Canal near Brinnon.
Reason for action: Surveys at Point Whitney Tidelands indicate that the clam population has increased, allowing for a longer season. The clam season at Point Whitney Tidelands runs concurrently with the clam season at Point Whitney Lagoon (Jan. 1 through April 30).
