ASTORIA, Ore. —

Fishery managers have approved four razor-clam digs in what has become a holiday season tradition for people near the Oregon-Washington border.

The Daily Astorian reports ( http://bit.ly/VqQdwJ) more than 200,000 clam diggers have descended on the Washington state beaches in recent years.

Diggers are limited to 15 razor clams per day, and are required to keep the first 15 clams they dig.

Some years' digs are in doubt, but this year, tests for marine toxins came up clean.

From Dec. 28 to New Year's Eve, diggers will get a chance to access the Twin Harbors area during low tide. Long Beach and Mocrocks will open on Dec. 29, and Copalis will open Dec. 30.
