Gouldsboro Shore and the Gouldsboro Shellfish Committee invite the community to clam digging demonstrations and lessons on Sunday, October 9, at 3:00 PM in Prospect Harbor. Whether you’ve dug your own clams for years or have never been on the mud, this is an opportunity to learn from commercial diggers about how to spot where clams are and dig them.
Shellfish Warden Mike Pinkham will be on hand to provide information about how to apply for a Recreational Shellfish License, which allows the license holder to harvest up to a peck of clams a day for personal use.
We will provide clam hoes, you need to provide clothes and boots that can get muddy. Prospect Harbor is one of our firmer, less silty clam flats. Most people should be able to get around on the mud without too much trouble.
We will meet down on the shore that is accessible from the public access path on Lighthouse Point Road in Prospect Harbor.
