Effective date: Closed until further notice.
Species affected: All clams.
Location: Point Whitney (excluding Point Whitney Lagoon). This beach is located in Jefferson County, near Brinnon.
Reason for action: Surveys indicate that the clam population on this small beach has decreased, requiring a closure in 2014. The Point Whitney Lagoon, located behind the cyclone fence, remains open for clamming through March 15. Oyster season at Point Whitney Tidelands remains open Jan. 1 through June 30.
