Abstract

A limit of 12 gapers and common Washington clams, in combination, may be taken from Elkhorn Slough on any minus tide. Average catch rates range from 3 to 7 clams per h on tides between 0.0 and minus 0.4 ft and increase up to 17 clams per h on tides lower than minus 1.4 ft. The size of clams taken increased with lower tides and ranged from 30 to 200 mm SD (shell diameter) for gapers and from 40 to 135 mm SD for common Washingtons. Gapers and common Washingtons averaged 119 and 100 mm SD, respectively. (15pp.)
