"Happy as Clams!" - Life in Washington State

By
Real Estate Agent with Fathom Realty West Sound WA State 52404

One of the favored pastimes here in beautiful Washington State is clam digging. The WA Dept. of Fish & Game has an excellent website full of helpful facts, resources, and regulations on harvesting shellfish.

To learn more about clam digging here on the scenic Kitsap Peninsula, go to Crabbing in the Hood.

Hey Rich,  I have many happy memories of going clam digging when I was a kid.  I also liked making roads in the sand.  You need to find a picture of a clam gun--probably many of the folks do not not what it is or looks like.

I used to get those "Googy Duck" clams from a diver that worked Puget Sound.  - Happy Trails to You and Yours, Bill Thomas, MontanaLandSale.com, Log Cabins For Sale

The show Dirty Jobs did a segment on the breeding and farming ot the Geoduck. I had never heard of it before much less seen one. Very odd.

My childhood memory of clams is the clam dinner at Howard Johnsons.  I loved it.  It was probably deep fried rubber, but hey, I was a kid.

Rich, my favorites are the "steamers" either with the drawn butter, fried in a batter "whole belly".  In fact, and call me crazy, I like the fried "whole belly clams" better than I like lobster, and I love lobster.

Oh you are the lucky ones, here in the mountains no fresh clams available. We do have crawdaddies and trout and that is about as close as we can get.
