Rich Thorpe of Bedford, Mass.; Peter Howard of Stockholm, Wis.; and Jon Falch of Peyton, Colo. (from left) get into the water with an 8-foot-plus white sturgeon they teamed up to land July 15 on the Columbia River near Portland, Ore., while fishing with Oregon sturgeon guide Charlie Foster of Northwest Sturgeon Adventures. By law, "oversize" white sturgeon measuring 60 inches or longer can't be brought into the boat so anglers often get right into the water with the fish for photos. (Brad Dokken photo)
