The Afternoon will be spent in the professional kitchen of the Oregon Coast Culinary Institute where their Award-Winning Chef will lead the group on preparation and cooking your catch into a delicious meal!
*You must have a license to participate.
Buy a shellfish license — Everyone 12 years or older will need a shellfish license to clam or crab in Oregon. No other tags, permits, validations, etc. are required.
You can buy a license online or at an ODFW license vendor. If you’re buying your license online, you can print out a hard copy on your home computer, or download your license to your smartphone using the MyODFW app.
If you prefer to buy a license in person, you can go to one of ODFW’s license vendors. This includes many Bi-Mart and Fred Meyer stores as well as several small independent retailers.
We will be checking all licenses before clamming.
*We will email all participants the week before the event to give instructions on where to park and meet for the morning clam dig and to assure you have your permits.
