Run with the
The 3rd annual Run with the Kokanee was a great success with over 200
runners registered! With the help of our sponsors, we raised a
significant amount of money to help continue our efforts to restore
kokanee in Lake Sammamish. Thanks to all who helped!
Outings - Clamming at Mocrocks Beach because it is getting cold and clam chowder will warm you up!
Date: December 6
Time: Arrive at garage at 1:00pm, leave at 1:15pm for Aberdeen. Low tide is at 6:30pm at -0.8ft so it should be pretty good
Place: Meet at Issaquah
Bus transit Center garage to carpool over. Located on corner of route
900 and Newport Way. I will be in the lower parking garage. Let
me know if you will be coming. Make sure you have your Discover
Pass just in case we need it at Mocrocks. We will stop in
Aberdeen for late lunch just before we headout to Mocrocks beach.
We will plan to have dinner in Aberdeen after clamming.
Equipment: Bring clam
shovel/gun, bucket or bag as each clammer has to have their own
container, waders or hip boots, headlight or lantern as it will be
dark, raingear, snacks, water, cooler for clams you keep and warm
clothes. The limit is the first 15 razor clams you dig up per
person. Make sure you have an ocean fishing license not just a
fresh water license. You can purchase one just for the day if you
want. If you have not tried clamming before it is fairly
easy and fun plus you get fresh clams to take home.
Contact John Silvey at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in going on this outing.
