xmlns="" xmlns:apcm="" xmlns:apnm="" xmlns:o=""> OLYMPIA, Wash. — The commercial Dungeness crab fishing season is set to open Jan. 15 along the southwest Washington coast following a six-week delay.

The state Department of Fish and Wildlife said Tuesday that coastal waters will open from the mouth of the Columbia River north to Klipsan Beach on the Long Beach peninsula. It includes Willapa Bay.

The fishing season traditionally begins Dec. 1, but was delayed to give the crabs more time to fill with meat.
