Crabbing & Clamming
Who Knew a crab could be funny? It's True: for novices, pulling up and dealing with one of these spindly creatures can be seriously hilarious. Dungeness crab, thought by many to be among the sea's finest delicacies, is thick in this area from midsummer to late fall, and available most of the rest of the year (commercial crabbing is closed Aug. 15 to Nov. 30).
Rent a crab ring at The Rogue Outdoor Store and follow the directions of your friendly crabber and tonight you'll dine in style.
Anyone who's paid $40 for a fancy clam dinner will be shocked by how easy it is to dig up and prepare your own for the cost of… well, a shovel and cooking pot; Razor clams take up concentrated residence in the sands of Bailey Beach and Myers Beach. For butter clams, you have to travel a bit: 24 miles north to Rocky Point. For more information on shellfish visit http://www.dfw.state.or.us/MRP/shellfish/
