Parks officials remind public about clamming ban at Fay Bainbridge Park
Bainbridge parks officials are reminding islanders that harvesting clams and oysters at Fay Bainbridge Park is now prohibited.
The board of the Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park & Recreation District voted last year to impose the restrictions, and at the meeting of the Washington State Fish and Wildlife Commission on Feb. 7, the state approved the park district's ban on shellfish harvesting at the park.
The beach at Fay Bainbridge Park is now closed to clams and oysters harvesting on a year-round basis.
For other alternative locations for clamming, visit the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife's website at http://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/shellfish/beaches or call the WDFW hotline at 1-866-880--5431.
