    Even stranger is the fact that clams don't live under rocks or stones.

    Bad headline. Looking for crabs, other critters, no doubt. Bay clams, usually Manila clams, on the pebbly/sandy reaches of Willapa Bay are often found intermixed with small rocks. They are also found in sandy/silty material ten feet to the side of the pebbly/sandy areas. I think the clams in those pebbly areas have better access to filter feeding.

    I'd bet on small crabs as well. Being a small crab is no piece of cake on these shorelines.
