Wilson on Outdoors: How much digging is too much digging for clams?

Question: We are planning a clamming trip to Bodega Bay this weekend. To what extent can I help my 6-year-old son dig for his clam without it counting toward my individual bag limit? Can I use the shovel and dig the hole for him while he uses his hands to dig around further and retrieve the clam? I am helping him access the clam, but he will be retrieving it himself. – Tom H., Yerba Buena
