Tuesday afternoon the Multnomah County River Patrol recovered and identified Don Larson from the Columbia River. Details of his death are not available at this time.
I have a lasting memory of Don as the best sturgeon fisherman I ever met. He loved the continuous action afforded by keeper sized fish. I am at a loss to express my sorrow adequately. I hope Don is in a place as beautiful and which brings him the joy he found fishing for stugeon in the Columbia River gorge.
Farewell, Don. Thank you for the years of fishing together.
