We go bay clamming with Shellfish Program Leader Mitch Vance during a minus-2 tide at Yaquina Bay to illustrate how many different types of clams you can find as well as some of the barriers to entry and challenges to be prepared for. We also talk about how you don’t need a minus-2 tide to find bay clams, in fact, you can find them year-round during almost any low tide if you know where to go. This episode was not recorded in the studio and has mic noise from wind and moving around the bay.
