Crabbing & Clamming

Softshell clams are native to the East coast, where they are an important commercial fishery. They are believed to have been introduced to Oregon in the late 1800s, timed with the attempt to begin a fishery for the eastern oyster. They are a good option for clammers wanting to explore upriver in less saline areas.
