Action: The sport clam and oyster fishing season will open on May 15, 2015, until further notice.
Effective date: Fort Flagler State Park: May 15 until further notice.
Species affected: All clams and oysters.
Location: Fort Flagler State Park. This beach is located in Jefferson County near Port Townsend.
Reason for action: Surveys indicate that the clam population on this beach decreased, and the state share of clams was overharvested in 2014, requiring a shorter season in 2015.
